John F. Kennedy: 50 Years On


jfk_library_pic_630

50 Years On

He gave us hope, a shining voice
A man of courage and pride
But when he was taken, far too soon
He left us all behind
A little dead inside

Vietnam might not have claimed
A generation’s life
Colleges might have focused on learning
Instead of riots and political strife

We could have had it all, as Adele would aptly say
Rolling in the deep
But instead we got a nightmare
And a country that can never sleep

What might have been
What could have been
— Isn’t

A dream is broken, gone
And so we move forward, with repentant tears
50 years on

 —Patricia Gay

We used to sing this song about John F. Kennedy when we were kids:

If you ever visit Cape Cod, take a moment to thank John F. Kennedy for the foresight he had to preserve and protect 40 miles of the cape’s shoreline for future generations, not just for the privileged few, to enjoy and cherish forever.
