Few modern Presidents have ignited the public imagination with hope as did John F. Kennedy. "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." These memorable words from his inauguration on that cold, blustery January 20, 1961 challenged a new generation to achievement. During his thousand days in office, John Kennedy challenged the world. Dealing with issues that brought the country to the brink of nuclear war, Kennedy kept a steady hand as he guided the ship of state. Gunned down in his prime on the streets of Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, he was taken from us befoe he had completely proven the testing of his Presidency. Yet, his youth and vigor remain to this day the image most have of this man whose 100th birthday we celebrate in this year. Join historian Keith Pruitt as he introduces the reader to an iconic figure of modern America.
