JFK & JACKIE SHINING CAMELOT
Below are excerpts from a little paperback book that's sat on my JFK shelf for years -- and which I sometimes lend to people wanting to learn about JFK, his life and times. Recently I've been writing articles focusing on JFK's love for Jackie and Jackie's love for JFK and, in furtherence of that, have scanned the following pages -- which ORWELL TODAY readers can click to enlarge for reading. ~ Jackie Jura
JFK was gone. And few men or nations remained untouched. The reason was not alone the power of his office; it was the magnetism of the man himself. John Kennedy caught and fired the minds of people around the globe....
Jacqueline Kennedy will remember him this way: sitting beside her, listening to a recording of his favorite Broadway show, Camelot, with Richard Burton, as King Arthur, singing:
"Don't let it be forgot...
that once there was a spot...
for one brief shining moment
that was known as Camelot."
Jackie Kennedy holds Camelot in her mind's eye -- in the bright memory of her ten years with her husband, and the joys, sorrows, tears and laughter of those years.
"There will be other great Presidents," she has said,
"but there will never be another Camelot."
This is the way his wife will remember John F Kennedy. The reader will find in this book countless other ways in which he will be remembered -- some of them small, some of them momentous, but all of them colorful and moving. Together they form a significant, enduring record of a page in history -- that tragically brief one shining moment.

watch JOHN F KENNEDY: YEARS OF LIGHTNING, DAYS OF DRUMS: It was true that the assassin took careful aim at the president of the United States. It was true, that at the precise moment the assassin waited for, the trigger was pulled. And it was true the president was killed. But it was also true that the assassin missed his target, for he wanted John Kennedy to die and that he was unable to do, for no man could take away years of lightning with a single day of drums....
