Jack Kennedy held out the promise of a new generation of enlightenment, but he didn’t get to finish the deal. His untimely demise, 45 years ago today, shocked and saddened us all. Whether for good or bad, his legacy lived on for too few years under another administration’s hopes and dreams.
Now, a new administration has presented us with a promise of hope during a much-different time. While there may be very few parallels to be drawn between the Obama and Kennedy administrations that are appropriate for today, I for one do believe that the beginning of a new era of enlightenment has taken hold. Only time will tell whether I am right or wrong.
Hope springs eternal.
