On this day, 60 years ago, the world was forever changed by the tragic assassination of American President John F. Kennedy, also known as JFK or Jack. The Kennedy family is no stranger to hard-to-explain tragedies, as evidenced by the immobile state of his sister Rosemary, who underwent a terrible and inhumane lobotomy two years prior. Kathleen died tragically at the age of 26 when her plane crashed in the French Alps, older brother Joe died in a war plane, and their brother Robert was killed while campaigning for president in 1968.
The tragedy did not end there, as their children would also pass away in the years that followed. The story of the Kennedy family is one that continues to captivate people around the world and will be explored further in a special feature that comes with the printed edition on Wednesday, November 22, 2023.
