John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the second son of the Kennedys, was the only Catholic president in US history. The sickly young boy surprised all people by being awarded Purple Heart in the World War II. Beyond that, his amazing work, Profiles in Courage, which won him the Pulitzer Prize for literature biography in 1957, also showed his gift in writing.

He was elected to be the 35th president by a narrow victory in 1960's presidential election. His famous inaugural address was born when he sworn in presidency in 1961. Unfortunately in 1963 in Dallas, Texas, his career was ceased early by an assassination that remained to be a mystery till today. And so was his life.

For all his contributions to the United States of America, such as representation of the liberal, struggle against racism, the Moon Program, this 46-year young statesman was regarded as one of the greatest presidents in America. Many world-famous constructions in the New York, like JFK International Airport, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Kennedy Space Center, were all named after him as a memorial. 【Translated by 2009/01/03/ 小宇宙百科09003】
