"A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on. Ideas have endurance without death."

John F. Kennedy

Born this day in 1917, John F. Kennedy, the 35th U.S. president, faced several foreign crises, most notably in Cuba and Berlin, and secured such achievements as the Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty before being assassinated in 1963.

One of the few widely loved presidents of the U.S. Probably because he was only in office for a bit more than two and a half years.
