Dallas, Texas — "Today we remember a dark episode in our Nation's history, and we remember the leader whose life was cut short 50 years ago.  John F. Kennedy dedicated himself to public service, and his example moved Americans to do more for our country.  He believed in the greatness of the United States and the righteousness of liberty, and he defended them.  On this solemn anniversary, Laura and I join our fellow citizens in honoring our 35th President."
