May 29th marks the 100-year anniversary of the birth of former United States President John F. Kennedy. Kennedy, who was the 35th President of the United States, was born in Brookline, Massachusetts. JFK lived grew up in Massachusetts and only left once we moved into the White House. Now, the city of Boston is gearing up to celebrate his 100-year-anniversary by looking back on his life and legacy.
The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum has announced a year-long celebration to honor the centennial anniversary of his birth. A special exhibit, called Milestones and Mementos will open on May 26th at his Presidential Library. The goal of the exhibit and celebration is to inspire the next generation to become visionaries like JFK.
John F. Kennedy was the youngest person ever elected to the Presidency, but his age did nothing to dimish his dreams for America or what he could accomplish. Most notable, dealing with the Cold War and Cuban Missile Crisis, leading the country to explore the 'new frontier' of science which eventually took us to the moon, and working to end racial discrimination and segregation in the country.
Several events will be held in the next month to honor JFK's life at the Presidential Library:
