On May 29, 1917, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was born in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Had he lived, he would be 90 years old today. Given his health — he was diagnosed with Addison’s disease in 1947 — and his risky lifestyle, chances are that he would not have lived a long life had he not been assassinated in 1963. But it is hard to imagine him as an old man; to those of us who remember him, he will always be 46 years old.
May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963
Don’t let it be forgot
That once there was a spot
For one brief shining moment
That was known as Camelot
