Michele Visits Dealey Plaza

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
John F. Kennedy
My family made several trips to Dallas to visit relatives when I was a child.  It was during one of those trips the following picture of me was taken at the Kennedy Memorial in Dealey Plaza.    
I was able to enlarge the picture enough to make out some of the words.  The plaque explains what happened on November 22nd, 1963 as the motorcade passed Dealey Plaza.

I leave you with President Kennedy’s most famous quote, including the second sentence which people usually leave out.
And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
John F. Kennedy,
 Inaugural address,
January 20, 1961
(P.S. The word “Love” is written on my slacks
The center of the “O” in love was orange.)
