Remembering JFK's life 50 years after his death

(SOUNDBITE) (English) PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY DELIVERING HIS INAUGURAL ADDRESS SAYING "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." With those words, John F. Kennedy launched his storied and ultimately tragic Presidency. It was fifty years ago this week, on that fateful November day in Dallas, Texa s that President Kennedy was shot dead. But in life, the youthful Kennedy, along with his wife Jacqueline, forever changed the office of the American Presidency. Kennedy called on Americans to rise to the challenge of a new era. (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY BEFORE A JOINT SESSION OF CONGRESS SAYING: "I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal before this decade is out of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to earth." Abroad, he emphasized the power and persuasion of the U.S. as when he told a crowd in West Berlin that he, too, is a Berliner.
