I was too young (15) and otherwise involved to understand politics or what Kennedy was all about to any extent, but that doesn't mean he didn't affect my life in a profound way, or that his death isn't still a wound I'll carry to my grave, as so many of us who were alive then will.

My good friend Hedda_Foil recommended this now online book to me a year or so ago (also available thru Amazon and elsewhere I think), and it's stunning. I recommend it to EVERYone who is interested in who Kennedy was as a Democratic President, what he stood for, why he inspired a generation (and more), why his assassination STILL matters (on so many levels) and is still incredibly pertinent to the good and future of this country, and perhaps especially why he was assassinated, and by whom (in broad strokes). Hedda asked me to let her know what I thought of the book, and I hadn't gotten past the first few chapters before I called her and said just that: "Now I understand why he had to die."

Farewell America by James Hepburn

I think Farewell America was written in the early 1970s. Please read it, everyone.
