31. As far as I am concerned, America has one, and will ONLY have one, so-called Royal Family.

And it will ALWAYS be the Kennedys.

That one family has given our country so much, and paid such a price for doing so, that THEY are our standard carrier.

I was only 12 when JFK was shot. I remember it, and vaguely understood that it was a big thing. But I was growing up in the south, where many celebrated it.

Growing older I realized the gravity of the sea change of attitude that he represented, and knew that a serious wrong was done to our country when he was stopped.

Jacqueline Kennedy was, rightly so for the time, the perfect first lady. She became so much more.

My heart still breaks when I think of what might have been under JFK, Jr. I am still very suspicious about that. He was beginning to express interest in going into politics, and would have been unstoppable. Yet he was stopped.

The whole family has sacrificed so much. Being under that type of microscope 24/7 has to be a hell on earth. Yet many of the descendants still continue to give.

I eagerly await another Kennedy to work their way up, to become a new rallying cry, and a new hope. Maybe I will still be alive when that happens.
