Top of Mind Thursday November 21, 2013: Revisiting Camelot: Half a Century Later

Top of Mind Thursday
This Saturday marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F Kennedy in Dallas, TX.

Leverage2Market LogoFive decades later, we are still debating whether Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, how Jack Ruby was able to get close enough to Oswald to kill him, and who might be behind a tangled web of conspiracy and coverup on that grassy knoll.

What’s clear though is that the events of that day brought to a close the era we called Camelot…a time following the end of WWII when we had a different, perhaps more simplistic view of world events.  Following Kennedy’s death, we were plunged into an unwinable war in Vietnam, student unrest and violence at home, and a vastly different global economic climate.

Yet by the end of the decade we had put a man on the moon, as Kennedy had challenged us to do. Would we have been better or worse off if JFK had not died that day in Dallas? No one knows, but this weekend we take a moment to remember the man who advised us to ask not what our country could do for us but what we could do for our country.
