To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of John F. Kennedy, Grades 5 & 6 viewed Part 1 of this History Channel documentary. It is a riveting series of "primary documents" compiled to tell the story of President Kennedy's final hours and the aftermath of his assassination. It's worth watching.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

"The stories of past courage can . . . teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration, but they cannot supply courage itself. For this, each man must look into his own soul." ~ J.F.K.
