John F.Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917 in Brookline and he was assassinated on 22 November 1963 in Dallas. He was the 35th president of the U.S.A in 1961 and his years in power were marked by the Cold War tension. He has left many quotes to remember my favorite for example is “Don’t pray for easy lives, pray to be a stronger man” because it says that the live is not an easy path, you have to become stronger to overcome your daily problems.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy(29th May 1917 Massachusetts-22 november 1963 Dallas) was one of the most popular president of the United States. He did a naval service in the Pacific in WW2. When he became president, in 1960, he had to deal with the Cold War with russians. He was a wise man, and he left a lot of interesting quotes. One of my favourite is "A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people." because it remembers me to the present, and to our actual situation, because the politicians don't let us say what we have to say, and they don't show us the truth. They are always lying and hiding things from us, because they're afraid to lose their power.

John F. Kennedy, born on May 29, 1917, Brookline, murded on 22 November 1963, Dallas, was the 35th president of the United States of America in 1961.
He is famous for holding on in the middle of the Cold War and for his mentality too. My favourite quote from far is "Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind." This teach us not just to choose the most peacefull way, but to respect and love each one of us.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy was born on 29 May 1917 in Massachusetts, into a wealthy and political Irish-American family. He was educated at Harvard University and he graduated in 1940. He entered politics in 1946 and he won election as a Democrat to the US House of Representatives. In 1952, he was elected to the Senate. But 22 November 1963 two bullets from an assassin's rifle hit President John F Kennedy in the head and throat. He died 35 minutes later.
Kennedy's years in power were marked in foreign affairs by Cold War tension, together with a rhetorical commitment to introducing domestic reforms - most of all to expanding the civil rights of African Americans.

One day, Kennedy went for Dallas airport in the city center . Somebody was inside a building and fired from a window. The president was hit. The chofer went to hospital.

He was murdered on 22nd November 1963 in Texas. Kennedy said lots of interesting quotes. I really like that: "Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth." I think if we try to change and don't resign ourselves we will be able to improve our society.

John F. Kennedy was born on 29th of May 1917 in Massachusetts. He was the 35th president of the United States. Tragically, however all his achievement (lead his mates in the 2nd Global War, reach the presidence...) he was shooted in public. So..., as something logical he died. He was assassinated on 22nd of November in Dallas. But even this story, he left a lot of good things, and a lot of good quotes that today still shining like they was said yesterday. My favourite is: "Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men".

John Fitzgerald Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917 in Brookline and he was assassinated on 22 November 1963 in Dallas. He was the thirty-fifth President of the United States. Many people have considered Kennedy as an icon of American hopes and aspirations, in surveys conducted in the country continues to be counted as one of the best presidents of the United States. During his presidency he gave some very encouraging quotes. My favorite quote from Kennedy's "Forgive your enemies, but never forget your name" because I think it's a quote that should apply in your day to day.

John F. Kennedy was born on 29th May 1917, in Brookline, Massachusetts and died assassinated by some shoots on 22nd November 1963, before he completed his third year in office. He was the 35th President of U.S.A.
Maybe you think that he was a excellent student, but you're wrong. He was a mediocre student and he only excelled on the subjects he enjoyed. He also was a really unhealthy boy so he missed many time the school. But when in the University he got serious, he made that his father feels proud.
He was a good man who did a lot of good things for make his country better. He said a lot of quotes that nowadays still in the memory of the people. My favourite is: "For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past, or the present, are certain to miss the future."
Because I think that quote resumes pretty good how the life is, always changing, and if you want to live you have to change with the life.

John Fitzgeral Kennedy was born on 29th May 1917, in Massachusetts, and he die in Dallas. He was the 35th President of the United States, and he was recognized for the important decisions that he took, for example: The expanding civil rights of African Americans.
He had a difficult period of governance, because he was marked by the Cold War with russians. At the last, he's remembered for his sentences, very exemplars, and my favourite and i think that's the best it's: ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

One lessons that we can learn is that you have to become strong to overcome you problems. Other famous quote I like is " For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past, or the present, are certain to miss the future."
