  2. JFK was the "New Frontier" cut short in Dallas on November 22, 1963. I was 10 years old when I saw the horrific news of his death on the black and white small television set in my parent's home. In my mind his youthful image, keen wit, and his concern for the American people during a critical period of the Cuban missile crisis will always remain with me.
    One of JFK's quote at the National Industrial Conference Board in Washington, DC, February 13, 1961. "It has recently been suggested that whether I serve one or two terms in the Presidency, I will find myself at the end of that period at what might be called the awkward age, too old to begin a new career and too young to write my memoirs."
