The day of November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas was a big one. In fact, it is one of the most talked about topics in all of America. The John F. Kennedy assassination. Till this day in 2016, fifty-three years later, this is still a very relevant topic. What really happened that day? Who really assassinated him? Was it someone that actually had something against JFK as an individual, or was it, as most people think of it, a conspiracy theory? I am going to talk about the life of Kennedy before presidency, during and how it led to one of the biggest tragedies in America. May 29, 1917 in Brookline, Massachusetts, the nations first born president in the twentieth century. Kennedy grew up in a wealthy home with wealthy parents. Much like our current president-elect, except in this case, Kennedy was much cooler and not irritating. Kennedy grew up in a home with political history because his grandfather was Mayor of Boston. Kennedy’s father made his wealth in the stock market and other big businesses. His father working in the stock market made him able to take his money out before the big crash of 1929. Thus, still being a wealthy man and having his nine children enjoy their life as a wealthy family. The Kennedy family grew up privileged going to expensive private schools, going around the seas or lakes in their boats and visiting their summer homes where all the fun happened. After the kids had their fun, it was time to focus on a more serious matter, which was going to college.
