For anyone who was at least eight years old in 1963, they will never forget the shock of the John F. Kennedy Assassination on this day 52 years ago!
We will never forget where we were when the shocking news was revealed, and we are still reverberating from the effects of that tragic event.
We have had no Presidential death in office since, and the odds are catching up, with a world burdened by “lone wolves” domestically, and international terrorism!
The death threats against President Barack Obama have been, as I reveal in my recent book, the greatest in number of any President since Abraham Lincoln.
Just this past week, it was revealed that a person was arrested who had made dangerous threats against President Obama on Facebook, including wanting to feed Obama to a wood chipper!
What kind of crazy mind would think up something like this, and also, thankfully, write about it, so that he could be apprehended?
Mental illness, along with religious fanaticism, are the main causes of the threats faced today by our President, but one can wonder, as many has, how Obama has survived nearly seven years without being directly harmed.
Not only Obama, but all Presidential candidates and the next President and Vice President, whoever they are, have been and will be under constant threat in a overly dangerous world!
It makes one wonder why any sane person would want to seek the Presidency or serve in that office!
