"What really counts is not the immediate act of courage or of valor, but those who bear the struggle day in and day out--not the sunshine patriots but those who are willing to stand for a long period of time."

Join us at our JFK Memorial Event

John F. Kennedy University, the only University in the nation to bear the President’s name, will hold a memorial program in his honor on November 22, 2013, the 50th anniversary of his death. The program will be held in the University’s main lobby at 100 Ellinwood Way, Pleasant Hill, from 10 - 11 am Pacific Time. A moment of silence at 10:30 am will mark the time of his assassination in Dallas, which took place at 12:30 am Central time.

John F. Kennedy was the "35th president of the United States (1961–63), who faced a number of foreign crises, especially in Cuba and Berlin, but managed to secure such achievements as the Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty and the Alliance for Progress. He was assassinated while riding in a motorcade in Dallas." --Encylopaedia Brittanica
