The JFK Files

J. Edgar Hoover Said Public Must Believe Lee Harvey Oswald Acted Alone  
NBC - October 27, 2017

Thousands of additional papers related to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy will remain classified at the urging of the C.I.A. and F.B.I. Trump grudgingly gave the agencies until April 26 to go through the remaining papers again and make their case. This begs the question: What are they hiding after 50 years? We all know it's a conspiracy with ties to Russia among others. What about more current conspiracies involving Russia and the US?

Ruby shooting Oswald to silence him

I remember watching strip club owner Jack Ruby break through a police guard and fatally shoot Lee Harvey Oswald in front of the world. I was 20, teaching first grade, too young to vote, a newlywed, and not at all surprised by this conspiracy. My husband Ralph and I were totally enmeshed in the unfolding events. Everyone knew it was a huge conspiracy that would go unresolved for decades, most likely forever. Most of the cast of characters have died, including Ralph, but there are some things you never forget as the energies to find truth linger on. Assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Interesting that Lee Harvey Oswald was born on October 18, while many things linked to the Kennedys take place in November.

November 20, 1929 - June 6, 1968

Robert F. Kennedy was an American
politician and lawyer from Massachusetts.

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator. And change has its enemies.

Tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom, not a guide by which to live.

Every generation inherits a world it never made; and, as it does so, it
automatically becomes the trustee of that world for those who come after.
In due course, each generation makes its own accounting to its children.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Jr. was a
pilot, lawyer, journalist, and socialite.

It's hard for me to talk about a legacy or a mystique.
It's my family - my father, my mother, and my sister.

We're a family like any other. We look out for one another.
The fact that there have been difficulties, hardships, or obstacles, makes us closer.

Those memories, good and bad,
are really what help to keep a family together over the long haul.
