John F. Kennedy was sworn in as the 35th President at noon on January 20, 1961. In his inaugural address he spoke of the need for all Americans to be active citizens, famously saying, "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." He also asked the nations of the world to join together to fight what he called the "common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself." In closing, he expanded on his desire for greater internationalism: "Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you."
President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time on November 22, 1963, while on a political trip to Texas. He was shot twice, in the neck and head, and was pronounced dead at 1:00 p.m. Only 46 when assassinated, less than half the age of Gerald Ford at his passing (the longest living president), President Kennedy died younger than any U.S. president to date. Lee Harvey Oswald, the principal suspect, was arrested at a movie theater at about 1:50 p.m. He denied shooting anyone, claiming he was a patsy, and was killed by Jack Ruby on November 24, before he could be indicted or tried. Jack Ruby was then arrested and convicted of murder. He successfully appealed his conviction and death sentence but he got ill and died as a date for his new trial was being set.
President Johnson created the Warren Commission—chaired by Chief Justice Earl Warren—to investigate the assassination. It concluded that Oswald was the lone assassin, but this remains disputed by some scholars, eyewitnesses, and the 1979 findings of the House Select Committee on Assassinations. Conspiracy theories about the assassination and supposed cover-up continue to circulate.

在他的就職演說中, 他提到了美國人有當公民的義務, 並留下了有名的格言 "不求國家可以為你做什麼, 但求你可以為你的國家盡什麼樣的力"
他還號召了全世界的國家合作打擊人類的公敵: 暴君制度, 貧窮, 各類疾病, 還有戰爭.
最後, 甘迺迪向所有人展現了他的大國際觀"不管你是美國公民還是世界公民, 希望你都能展現出高水準的力量以及自我犧牲精神"

甘迺迪身中兩槍(脖子與頭部), 在下午一點鐘被宣告死亡. 甘迺迪遇刺時只有四十六歲, 還不到美國史上最長壽總統福特的一半. 甘迺迪是美國最短命的總統.

傑克,盧比 接著被以謀殺罪名逮捕, 並且承認了這個罪名. 之後, 他成功的上訴並逃掉了死刑, 但卻在新的一次法庭偵訊開庭當天因病過世.
接任甘迺迪的強生總統組成了所謂的"華倫委員會", 由首席大法官厄爾.華倫擔任主席, 來偵辦甘迺迪刺殺案.
本案的結論是, 奧斯瓦德是本案單獨行動的殺手, 不過當時的目擊證人, 學者, 還有1979年的眾議院甘迺迪刺殺專案小組的報告都對這項結果抱
本案的共謀論以及黑吃黑嫌疑論還是蠻活躍的Source(s): 網路, 我上過的美國史, 我, 我, 我
