What with all the threads lately about -- "What has ?????? done for you?"---------I am reminded that once again November twenty-second falls on a FRIDAY this year-----just as it did in 1963.

Realizing that makes me recall that sad day 39 years ago when John Kennedy was killed. And I'm also remembering what John KKennedy said in his innaugural address:

"Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."

That is, in some ways, just another take on those rather silly threads----.

I'd recommend renting "Thirteen Days" on this occasion to see how JFK handled a complex situation with great wisdom and sensitivity.

I too remembers the day President Kennedy got shot and anyone who was around on that day remembers the shock and emptiness.On the morning of November 23,1963 I received a telegram from the White House and signed by President Lyndon Johnson asking every State Chaplain of The Veterans Of Foreign Wars to hold a special memorial service in his honor.On November 24 1963 the State Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars State of Montana ordered a special meeting to be held in Helena,Montana at the State Memorial Building.I was the State Chaplain elect for the State of Montana so on this date November 24 1963 I Louie Roy wrote and delivered these words to the group assembled at this meeting.

Today is a very sad day in the history of the United States and to what I refer is the assassination of our late President John Fitzgerald Kennedy who on November 22,1963 in the city of Dallas and in the great State of Texas was ruthlessly shot down by a mad assassinator cowardly bullet and taken from us in the fullness of his vigor and with so much promise unfilled.In our grief and in our mourning we found it hard to understand that such a tragety as this could occur in this great country of ours and that our President could be taken from us with such an unjust,unwarranted and untimely death,for he had won the admiration and respect of all men and women even of those who differed from him both in politics and religion.It was he who had also won the admiration and love of all free people in all free nations throughout the entire world,and it was also he who was grossly feared by the leaders in their communist regimes.
O'God it could be thy purpose to focus our attention in a dramatic and effective manner on the manhood,the strength of conviction and the spirit of heroic sacrifice for our country and our ideals that John Fitzgerald Kennedy so often expressed and put into practice even to the giving of his life.Let us be inspired Our Creator and our God to imitate in thought and deed the courage of our late President and his loyalty to the American way of life.Let us not give way to pessimism,defeatism or cynicism about the final destiny or missions of this great country of ours,but let us accept the challenges and problems of the century in such a manner that through our work and our prayers and with your guidance O'God we will make them mere stepping stones to the future greatness of America and a lasting contrbution to the freedom of all men.
