John F Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum - Boston, MA

7/7/15 - John F Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

This museum sits on Boston’s waterfront. The Victura, his boat, is on display behind the museum, on the grounds. I was especially moved by all the personal items in the library. It was a very intimate display of John F. Kennedy’s life, legacy, and leadership.

My favorite moment was standing in the recreated Oval Office room and watching MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech. John F Kennedy was our 35th President during a very conflicted time in our Nation’s history. I was reminded of that as I stood there and watched the footage of Americans pleading for equality and fair treatment.

John F Kennedy had a dream too. It involved landing on the moon. He was President during the ‘race for space’ era. Did he accomplish that goal? Yes, we put a man on the moon.

He was also President during the Cuban Missile Crisis and a major portion of the museum is dedicated to that. The documents, history and events of that critical time are on display, It was fascinating and very educational. He had a level mind and a desire for peace – Not a nuclear world war.

I loved reading the hand written notes in the museum – so very personal. Made the place come to life.

I left feeling very grateful for dreams and ideas and the ability we have to make a difference!

“A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on.”
John F Kennedy, February 8, 1963

Choose Happy.

Thoughts ...

Focus on the positive. Sure, there are a ton of bad things in life ... what good does it do to focus on them? The best way to make a difference is to move forward with positive energy. Lift others along your way!

I promise, the positive energy you choose to share and radiate will lift others around you.

Choose happy and move forward!

So American!

Happy July ...

America, land that I LOVE!

I think there's nothing more American than a farm and a barn and a flag ...
Baseball is up there on the list too.
