A Back Mark in History...
Last month when I was in US of A, we drove to Dallas.
And stopped at the spot where the 35th President of the US of A – John F Kennedy (JFK) - was assassinated in 1963.
It is a good 50 years before – That’s almost half a century now!
The years that had passed has not reduced the mystery around it though.
It was shocking to realize that a President was shot in public, in spite of tight security.
And, it is heart-wrenching to know that nobody could find who the murderer was.

Some of his quotes are given below:
© “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
© “A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on. Ideas have endurance without death.”
© “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.”
© “Mankind must put an end to war - or war will put an end to mankind.”
© “Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly.”
The Cross mark on the road refers to the spot where JFK was assassinated.
