JFK Memorial Fort Worth

Before President Kennedy's fateful visit to Dallas, he stayed overnight at the Hotel Texas (now part of the Hilton chain). Beside the hotel is a Kennedy Memorial. The JFK Tribute was opened in November 2012.
Despite the wind and rain we wandered around Fort Worth yesterday and visited the memorial, a day not unlike the one 50 years ago when President Kennedy addressed the crowd at this spot before returning to the hotel for a Chamber of Commerce Breakfast.

Thank you so very much for featuring this. It is wonderful.

I personally think the Ft.Worth tribute to JFK is far superior to the Dallas one. And of course, the eternal flame at Arlington National Cemetery is the most touching.

It's a beautiful place in honor of a great man. His death was such a tragedy for our country.

I visited the spot where the assassination took place about 5 years after it happened. It amazed me to see how many people milled about taking pictures, as though the tragedy had happened only yesterday.
