JFK Assassination  

It’s been 60 years since America's youngest president; John F. Kennedy was assassinated. John F. Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917, and raised in Brooklyn Massachusetts. He was the 35th president of the United States and ran for the Democratic party, and his vice president was Lydon B. Johnson.  John Fitgelrd Kennedy was in his third term of his presidency, he started in 1961 and his term ended in 1963 when he died. Johnson. He was assassinated on November 22, 1963. This happened when JFK was touring the state of Texas with his wife First Lady Jackie Onassis and the Governor of Texas John Connally when he was assassinated.

JFK was 46 years old when he was shot and killed. He was riding in one of Henry Ford's presidential Lincolns, which were leased to the white house for residential use. JFK was assassinated by a man named Lee Harvey Oswald. Just two days after the assassination a local nightclub owner found and shot Lee Harvey Oswald on November 24, 1963. No one has any clue as to why Oswald killed JFK, nobody knows the motive or the reason behind it to this day. People have many thoughts as to if Lee Harvey Oswald was working alone, or if he had help.

Some people believe Lyndon B. Johnson the vice president had something to do with it. Personally, I believe that Oswald worked alone on this one, I think he didn’t like JFK as a president and wanted to eliminate him or take him out of office. 

Do you think Lee Harvey Oswald did this alone?

What would your reaction be if someone was shot right next to you? 

Have you heard of the JFK assasination? If so do you have any conspiracy theories?

  • I think that Lee Harvey Oswald did the assasination alone. However! There is a high possibility that it could have been an inside job. I think it would be a lot more interesting than just a simple assasination. I have in fact heard of the conspiricys and I think that they are more intertaining. 

    • I agree, there are many different conspiracy theories! I think it would be more interesting if someone else worked with Oswald. 

  • I think he definitely had other people in on this it wasn't just Lee. I would be very confused and scared if someone was shot right next to me I would also be worried that I would be the next one shot because I was right next to the person who got shot.   

    • Good point, I personally still think he worked alone. I feel like if someone got shot next to me I wouldn't know what to do, it would leave me scarred and probably with PTSD. 

  •  I think that Lee Harvey Oswald had a lot of help. He probally had friends in with it or something. If someone was shot right next to me I would probally run so i don't get shot and injured. I have heard about the J.F.K. assasination. I have just heard about how most of the kennedy that run for office end up dieing early.

    • I'm not sure about him working with a lot of people, he most likely set this all up himself, we still don't know his motive to this day. Good point though, that's a good conspiracy theory.
