    John F Kennedy's Inauguration--50 Years

    In this election year of 2012, January 20th marks the 50th Anniversary of the swearing in of John Fitzgerald Kennedy as the 35th President of the United States. January 20th, 1961 was the day when John F Kennedy took the oath of office as President of the United States. For me, a 12 year old boy at that time, Kennedy became the second President that I could remember. Up until then it had been President Eisenhower. Kennedy's Presidency came not to long after the end of World War II, the Korean Conflict, and in the middle of the Cold War. His Inaugural address set the tone for his Administration. The most memorable part of his address came at its conclusion when he said "And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."
