MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM JFK+50
Knoxville, Tennessee, USA (JFK+50) The White family extends the best wishes of the season to all visitors of JFK+50.
I will take the liberty of repeating the most appropriate JFK quotation sent out in an email by the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas this year:
“All of us….want the same things for America, we want security for our families, we want peace in the world, & we want to see the cause of freedom strengthened. That is our obligation.”
