John-John Turns 50!

If he had lived, JFK, Jr. would have turned 50 today.

Imagine what a hot man he would have been . . . the rest is hard to imagine--what he might have become, what he might have accomplished.

His death was truly a low point in the 1990s for me. I agree with Oprah (for once). There's a lesson here for us somewhere . . . about living in the now, about making the most of every single day.

On this Thanksgiving Day, I'm thankful that JFK and Jackie made such a beautiful son, and I hope he and Carolyn and Lauren are breaking bread with our Lord today.

I saw snippets of that Oprah show today.

It was doubly sad back in 1963 when John celebrated his third birthday on November 25th (the day of his father's funeral) and Caroline her sixth on November 27th. :(

What a sad loss this was. The Kennedys lost so much with the loss of lives that should have been leaders in our nation for many more years.

I must say my life was influenced greatly by them in so many ways. It is not often when you can have people to look up to so much. Thank you so much for pointing out this about John.

(Odd to think I have no Kennedy icons, considering the effect they had on both our lives!)

It's hard to think of JFK, Jr. as 50 -- and I guess we never will. He's forever young in our hearts. (And so is his dad, for that matter!)

I still miss him. Like you, I wish him GREAT things in heaven...

He was so attractive, I often think -- what if!

I remember clearly the day he went down, and how sad I was and how I instantly flashed through the times I had met him and how I always figured there would be MORE of them..

Funny I did not hold out hope, like so many did that he was going to be found and saved.
