John F. Kennedy, although only President for 34 months, Kennedy had a profound effect on the hearts and minds of Americans. At a time when the world teetered on the edge of nuclear self-annihilation, he walked the fine line between a determination for freedom and the perils of confrontation. He is …most known for the Cuban Missile Crisis. While he refused to invade communist Cuba, he also refused to allow the USSR to establish missile bases there. He believed in improving the world by example, sending foreign aid and establishing the Peace Corps to help the Third World. He helped build NASA into a vast enterprise to explore the New Frontier of space. He brought new pressure to bear on the issue of Civil Rights, using the power of the federal government to end the second-class citizenship of African-Americans. He also represented the idealism of American youth. Why is he so famous? Because he was courageous enough to stand up for truth and justice. He was a great leader with a revolutionary agenda to change our world for the good of humanity. That makes him more than famous, it makes him one of the greatest leaders this world has ever had.

That depends on how you see success He was certainly the most popular president the US has ever seen.
He was assassinated while he was president. There was no "after" for him in this life.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was sworn in as the 35th president on January 20, 1961, and he served until his death on November 22, 1963.
He did a lot both good and bad depending on who you talk to of course. His most notable positive contributions was defeating Russia in the Space Race (we landed on the moon after his death) and the African American Civil Rights Movement. The latter being a very historical and important in terms of e…nding segregation. (MORE)
Since nobody really knows the real reason for this we have to look to general reasons why this might happen. . Historically there have been 20 attempted assassinations of presidents in USA. somebody who is insane might consider that to be reason alone to attempt to kill another one. In truth a per…son with a psychological problem would need no reason to assassinate other than the target was well known. Richard Lawrence killed Andrew Jackson and spent the rest of his life in a mental asylum. . To stop a particular political policy or agenda. . Revenge, as in the assassination by Booth of President Lincoln. Booth being a confederate sympathiser. . In error, as in the case of Roosavelt who some researchers think was killed by the Mafia who were really targeting the Mayor. The most obvious of these is to stop a political agenda or policy, and it is probably this reason that JFK was murdered. If we believe that Lee Harvey Oswald was the perpetrator, or at least involved in a conspiracy then the reason is probably to further the cause of communism in USA. If you don't think that Lee Harvey Oswald was the assasin (or at least involved in the conspiracy) then write abook about your theories and you could make lots of money. I'm just waiting for the JFK was an alien being version right now. (MORE)

It is very controversial and there has yet to be a shooter/shooters determined which everyone agrees on. However according to the Warren Comission and all other conclusive investigations JFK was shot and killed by Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone.
Created the Green Berets, Seals, and set the US up to win the space race; by putting a man on the moon in 1969. He also negotiated cuban missile crisis, ensured the safe return of MLK Jr from jail, provided military/national guard protection to Freedom Riders and Meredith to register and attend sc…hool at Ole Miss (desegregating the school) (MORE)
John Kennedy was 43 years of age when he took the Oath of Office on January 20, 1961. And he was 46 years old when he was assassinated on November 22, 1963.. John Kennedy still holds the distinction of being the youngest elected President in U.S. history.
Thirty-fifth U.S. President John Fitzgerald Kennedy [May 29, 1917-November 22, 1963] was listed as measuring 6' to 6'1/2" to 6'1" in height, and weighing 148 pounds while an undergraduate student at Harvard, and 175 pounds during his three years in the White House.

He married Jacqueline Lee Bouvier on September 12th, 1953. They were married in Saint Mary's Church in Newport, Rhode Island. He was thirty-six, she was twenty-four years old at the time.
John Kennedy was the youngest president of the U.S.A. He was a charm img person and very clever and bold as well.
Kennedy was assassinated (shot) while he was president. He died while in office. He did not get a chance to do anything after his presidency.
He was the 34th person to become President, but the 35th President, since the two non-consecutive terms of Grover Cleveland are counted as two separate American Presidencies.
JFK created the Peace Corps, and won the Pulitzer Prize. 3 He was born on May 17,1917. 4 He had a birthday 5 he was an Irish Catholic.
He had 3. Caroline ( still alive), John (died in an airplane accident) and baby Patrick born while he was President, but only lived a few days.
One of the biggest challenges he faced was the fact he was Catholic. The country never had had a Catholic president and there was a great deal of discussion about it. He also wasn't in the Senate very long and, like Obama, there was discussion about experience and how young he was. I think the bigge…st factor in his winning over Nixon was the first TV debate. Nixon looked like he was dead and Kennedy was young vibrant and real. When he won he still faced some of the same issues, but he headed into fray. He appointed his brother Bobby attorney general and also brought in more of his political machine. He faced the fact the Russians were starting to spread out with missiles closer to the US, he had Castro to deal with, he and Bobby went after the mob and to get the unions out of control under the mob. He wanted to pass civil rights legislation and the civil rights movement was just starting. Viet Nam was in the works and he would have to decide how to deal with that. Put in more troops? or pull out? ( very similar to Obama in the East) Berlin was still divided by the wall and the cold war was starting to "heat up". JFK had a full plate. (MORE)
JFK kickstarted the project to go to the Moon, tried to invade Cuba (the Bay of Pigs), and proved that 1960s security was not strong enough, among other things.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time on Friday, November 22, 1963 , in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas.
He probably did not have the greatest personal wealth because he died so young. He stood to inherit a great deal but did not live to do so. Franklin Roosevelt probably had more than Kennedy .
The first president born in the 20th century, Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917. He grew up in a wealthy family. He was sickly as a child and continued to have health problems the rest of his life. He attended private schools his whole life including the famous prep school, Choate. He then attended H…arvard (1936-40) majoring in Political Science. He was an active undergraduate and graduated cum laudeIn 1960, Kennedy was nominated to run for the presidency against richard nixon , Eisenhower's Vice President. During Kennedy's nominating speech, he set forward his ideas of a "New Frontier." Nixon made the mistake of meeting Kennedy in televised debates where Kennedy came off as young and vital. Kennedy won by the smallest margin of popular votes since 1888, winning by only 118,574 votes. However, he received 303 electoral votes. .Kennedy had a tough time getting many of his domestic programs through Congress. However, he did get an increased minimum wage, better Social Security benefits, and an urban renewal package passed. He created the Peace Corps, and his goal to get to the moon by the end of the 60's found overwhelming support. On the Civil Rights front, Kennedy initially did not challenge Southern Democrats. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed that only by breaking unjust laws and accepting the consequences could African Americans show the true nature of their treatment. The press reported daily on the atrocities occurring due to nonviolent protest and civil disobedience. Kennedy used executive orders and personal appeals to aid the movement. His legislative programs, however, would not pass until after his death. (MORE)

It is hard to say why, when they have never known (or at leastreleased) who actually assassinated him. It is believed that it mayhave been over civil rights, but depending on who did it, it couldhave been any number of reasons.
No, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was actually the 35th president of theUnited States.He was born in May 28, 1917 and died in November 22,1963.
John and both of his parents were born in the United States as were his four grandparents. All eight of his great-grandparents were born in Ireland.
I would say he did not have many difficulties in his way to fame. Aside from being an Irish Catholic, he probably had one of the easiest paths to the Congress, to the Senate and to the presidency that any man ever had. Of course, this path is never easy and few are able to take it He had to make goo…d use of his advantages and he did. He paid a terrible price for last push into fame by dying in the prime of life in a spectacular way so that may be his ultimate difficulty. (MORE)
Yes she did. It was said that the crowds that went to see JFK would double whenever Jackie was with him. Her televised tour of the White House generated greater public support for his administration. Her style, appearance as a devoted mother and wife, fluency of Latin-based languages, and French bea…uty only added to JFK's overall popularity. (MORE)
Mostly his father, at first. After older brother, Joe, was killed in the war, his father pinned his hopes on John. John took on the burden and did what he could to be advanced in politics.
A date and denomination is needed. JFK is only on the half dollars, the term "Double Eagle" refers only to $20 gold coins. Post new question.

When you are extremely wealthy you don't need guns - you just hire people to protect you. That's why celebrities and politicians just can't understand why 'us average folk' own and or need guns.
