On this day in 1961, five days after he was inaugurated, John F. Kennedy conducted the first live televised presidential news conference. On Nov. 22, 1963, the charismatic Kennedy was shot and killed by a sniper in Dallas, Texas. The Kennedy legacy is perhaps best summed up by his own words: “Let us go forth asking His help and His blessing, but knowing that here on earth, God’s work must truly be our own.”
Everywhere we look, the needs are great and so are the opportunities for service. And the next move, of course, is ours.
