    We must never forget about the assassination of one of our greatest presidents. Not only did he leave a loving family behind with his death, but an entire nation in mourning for its loss.

    I am a Brit, I heard the sad news when I was in the bath. He was a great president, he so wanted peace and prosperity for every American citizen, he cared for everyone along with his family, he was loved so much in the UK. He will be that president that will never be forgotten, we miss you JFK.
