  As I conducted my interview I chose to interview my grandfather Mr.Willie Clark. When I approached my grandfather about interviewing him he was very willing and understanding. When I told my grandfather I needed him to tell me about an event national or international that really effected him, he chose to tell me about the assignation of President John F. Kennedy.

  My interview followed along as I was given this information. The following was said by my grandfather. " I was a man in his forties around the time of President Kennedy assignation. In the year of 1964 I was sitting on the porch one day when about 2:30 my wife came and told me she had just heard that JFK had just got shot. At that particular time I was shock with devastation. The thought of having a new President ran through my mind quite a bit. At that time I was thinking would we ever have an President like JFK, and how would the world react. In that time frame of my life I was just a African American male in his middle ages trying to survive in a crazy world where people can't get alone. Throughout that entire week I just cried and prayed that the lord would be with us, and be with the family of JFK during they're great lost. Now that I look back to that time frame I say to myself maybe that's God way of saying it's time to come home. Yes my perspective have greatly change since that year, and I also wonder and hope we have another President as good as JFK. The assignation really had a personal impact on my life because President Kennedy was the only President that really seemed to care the AfricanAmerican people".

  The life of President John F. Kennedy all begun May 29, 1917 . Graduating from Harvard in 1940, he entered the Navy. In 1943, when his PT boat was rammed and sunk by a Japanese destroyer, Kennedy, despite grave injuries, led the survivors through perilous waters to safety. Back from the war, he became a Democratic Congressman from the Boston area, advancing in 1953 to the Senate. He married Jacqueline Bouvier on September 12, 1953.
In 1956 Kennedy almost gained the Democratic nomination for Vice President, and four years later was a first-ballot nominee for President. Winning by a narrow margin in the popular vote, Kennedy became the first Roman Catholic President. President Kennedy life tragically ended on November 22, 1963, when he was hardly past his first thousand days in office, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was killed by an assassin's bullets as his motorcade wound through Dallas, Texas. Kennedy was the youngest man elected President; he was the youngest to die.
