"I’m not obsessed" I say as I fluff my Bobby pillow, pull up my Jack blanket, adjust my Kennedy Family picture, read my kennedy book, and stare at the campaign poster.

A tear brought to the eye!

I just learned something that was very touching. We all know how President Kennedy moved heaven and earth to advance the space program, and Nasa. But his assassination prolonged our dreams for another 6 years. Upon Apollo 11 landing a man on the moon, an unknown person laid a bouquet of flowers on President Kennedy's grave and a note card that said, "Mr. President, the Eagle has landed."

Hiya! I'm sorry if you have already got this message from me, I don't think it went through :( When did you first learn of Jackie and when did you begin to admire/like her (if that makes sense). I first learnt of her when we did the assassination in history, (in England we only do the assassination, I want to live in America so I can learnt so much more about them) It surprises me that people over here haven't heard of Jackie that much, especially my age (14). Wow that was long, sorry! :)

Sorry for the late reply.

I first learned about Jackie when I was younger, sometime in grade school I suppose, but it wasn’t until I was around thirteen when I first started admiring her. (side note: that was a really awkwardly written sentence.) 

When you mentioned that your friends/people around your age have not really heard about her, it is kind of the same over here, maybe not to the same degree but nonetheless. Many kids know who she is but not really all that she was and without that aspect much of the Kennedy Legacy is lost. 

I hope I answered your question!

It is nice to see that Jack and Jackie did not push gender appropriate toys on their children.

Does anyone know what time Jackie was born? Random question, it just came to my mind. I always thought it was 5:00pm but i'm not sure.

I think I read it was around 2:00 pm.

Hi! I really love your blog, I am constantly on it and my friends always tut whenever I mention it. You have given me the confidence to be myself and speak out for what I believe is right. I am so glad to know that I am not the only person who sees Jackie for the true inspirational woman she was. You do a brilliant job on this blog, never let anyone tell you otherwise. Keep up the fantastic work. Just another follower, Kirsten x

President-elect Kennedy talks to reporters shortly after the birth of his son, John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. 1960

One of my favorite videos.  LOL.  Love how they are still referring to John Jr as it and not him.

These photographs by Mark Shaw, never used,  were taken during the Bay of Pigs disaster in 1961.  The President later commented that he had decided not to release them. ‘I looked too serious.’  It was a grim, tense day, but he brought none of this to the top floor of the White House.  Afterward he had lunch, a sandwich and fruit on a small tray.  He made no mention of the cause and reason for his quiet.
