A President's Value, Yesterday And Today
When someone that is almost "larger than life" suddenly dies, we are all reminded of our own mortality. That's one of the first responses....even if some of us don't want to admit it.
I wonder what our Nation would feel if President Obama was suddenly taken by
an assassin's bullet today?
Would the Country react to his murder like we did when President Kennedy died?
It's a fair question to ask.
Our current president is not doing very well in the popularity polls, right now. In fact, a great many Americans are downright mad at him.
And yet, it seemed like the entire Country was in love with Jack Kennedy when somebody took his life.
I'm writing "somebody" because, of course, there are many conspiracy theories that still have a tight grip on this incident, fifty years later.
What did the United States really lose when President Kennedy died?
What did we gain when President Barack Obama was re-elected?
Where is our Country going to go from here?
If President John Fitzgerald Kennedy held the keys to "Camelot"...what does President Barack Hussein Obama carry in his hands, now?
And what would Jack Kennedy say to Barack Obama if he had the chance
to speak to Obama today?
It makes one wonder, doesn't it?
A Point Of Thought: Yesterday And Today
