When you live with chronic pain,
you never tell the truth.

When someone asks you how
you are or how you feel.

You lie and say,
I"m fine or I"m ok,
and you smile.
Judy Rose

Can I just spend the whole day talking to you, laughing with you and loving you?

The Coming New World Order
I think that his [Obama's] task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period, when really a New World Order can be created.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
(May 29, 1917 - November 22, 1963)

President Kennedy, often referred to by initials JFK and Jack, was an American politician who served as the 35th president of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963.  Kennedy served at the height of the Cold War, and the majority of his work as president dealt with managing relations with the Soviet Union and Cuba.

Kennedy was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, and graduated from Harvard University before joining the U.S. Naval Reserve the following year.  During World War II, he commanded a series of PT boats in the Pacific theater and earned the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for his service.

After the war, Kennedy represented the 11th congressional district of Massachusetts in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1947 to 1953.  He was subsequently elected to the U.S. Senate and served as the junior Senator from Massachusetts from 1953 to 1960.

While in the Senate, Kennedy published his book Profiles in Courage, which won a Pulitzer Prize for Biography.  In the 1960 presidential election, he narrowly defeated Republican opponent Richard Nixon, who was the incumbent vice president.

Kennedy's administration included high tensions with communist states in the Cold War.  He increased the number of American military advisers in South Vietnam.  In April 1961, he authorized a vain attempt to overthrow the Cuban government of Fidel Castro in the Bay of Pigs Invasion.  Kennedy authorized the Cuban Project in November 1961.  He rejected Operation Northwoods.

In October 1962, U.S. spy planes discovered Soviet missile bases had been deployed in Cuba; the resulting period of tensions, termed the Cuban Missile Crisis, nearly resulted in the breakout of a global thermonuclear conflict.  Domestically, Kennedy presided over the establishment of the Peace Corps and the continuation of the Apollo space program, and supported the Civil Rights Movement.

On November 22, 1963, he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson assumed the presidency upon Kennedy's death.  Various groups contested the Warren Report and believed that Kennedy was the victim of a conspiracy.  After Kennedy's death, Congress enacted many of his proposals, including the Civil Rights Act and the Revenue Act of 1964.  Kennedy ranks highly in polls of U.S. presidents with historians and the general public.  His personal life has also been the focus of considerable interest, following revelations of his chronic health ailments.

Anger, is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.
