Never forget: HE SAVED THE HUMAN RACE!!
The eternal flame burns brightly! THIS IS A GREAT APP FOR PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY - OUR GREATEST PRESIDENT! If you doubt this declaration, learn about the CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS. While the Hawks pressured him to start war, JFK's steady resolve and masterful handling of the naval blockade allowed us to avoid nuclear war and the end of civilization. He truly was a great man, despite any personal failings.
