COMMEMORATION OF JOHN F KENNEDY
EDM #706
Tabled 11 November 2013
2013-14 Session
That this House notes the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy on 22 November 1963 and the lasting impact it has had across the world; remembers and pays tribute to his presidency and the huge contribution he made to the civil rights movement, the reduction of nuclear weapons, the introduction of Medicaid, the establishment of the Peace Corps, space exploration, and ending the Cold War; recognises the unique characteristics Kennedy brought to the presidency, and that his youth, energy, charisma, compassion and continuous belief that politics can bring out the best in people embodies not just the generation of the 1960s but those to come; recalls the intense pressure of the Cuban missile crisis and the remarkable statesmanship Kennedy displayed in preventing a global nuclear conflict; praises the efforts he undertook to close the gaps between rich and poor, young and old, black and white, American and non-American; and shares the late President's belief that, if a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.
