John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917-1963) was the 35th President of the United States who served from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. Prior to his presidential election, Kennedy was a decorated veteran of World War II, U.S. Senator, and best-selling author. Despite his relatively short presidency, Kennedy is remembered for his exceptional oratory skill, political triumphs and mistakes, and ambitious dreams for a better tomorrow.

"World peace, like community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor—it requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance, submitting their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement."
