JFK would be 100 in 2017Breaking News
The 100th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's birth is being celebrated next year with a series of events meant to inspire a new generation to uphold his ideals, organizers said Monday.
"The aim is to highlight President Kennedy's legacy and show that we all have so much to learn from him," said Steven Rothstein, executive director of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation.
Kennedy was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, on May 29, 1917, and in 1960 was the youngest person ever elected president. He was assassinated in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.
