Over the course of thousands of years man has become civilized. We have tried to make things better with new inventions and ideas. With these new ideas and new ways of living there have been problems associated with them. Man invented the wheel, which really improved the way he lived. But then he discovered that something as insignificant as a little hole in the ground could be his enemy when he was using the wheel. Man discovered fire and learned the good and bad that can come from it. Then later on in evolution man decided there should be a way of ranking people, like the wolves.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the 35th President of the United States, the youngest person ever to be elected President, the first Roman Catholic and the first to be born in the 20th century. Kennedy was assassinated before he completed his third year as President, therefore his achievements were limited. Nevertheless, his influence was worldwide, and his handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis may have prevented the United States from entering into another world war. Kennedy was especially admired by the younger people and he was perhaps the most popular president in history. Kennedy expressed the values of 20th century America and his presidency had an importance beyond its political achievements. John Fitzgerald Kennedy was born in Brookline, Massachusetts where he was one of nine children. The Kennedy family was very wealthy and provided means for the Kennedy children to pursue whatever they chose and John F. Kennedy chose politics. John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1942 and as a new member Kennedy supported legislation that would serve the interests of his elements. Kennedy usually backed bills sponsored by his party but would sometimes show independence by voting with the Republicans. He also joined with the Republicans in criticizing the Truman administration’s handling of China. In China, the Nationalist government of Chiang Kai-shek, which had been supported by the United States, was unable to withstand the advance of Communist forces under Mao Zedong. By the end of 1949 government troops had been overwhelmingly defeated, and Chiang led his forces into exile on Taiwan.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy was born May 29, 1917, into a new wealthy Catholic family (Mehltretter). He lived a privileged lifestyle and was known for being a playboy, not really caring about his studies. However, a trip to Pre-World War II Europe significantly impacted his life which later motivated him to join the Naval Intelligence Office. After his heroic actions during World War II, he returned home a war hero. Eventually, Kennedy became a U.S Senator for Massachusetts. While in Congress, Kennedy was already aiming for the sky. He lobbied to become Democratic nominee Adlai Stevenson's vice presidential running mate in 1956, but failed to gain Stevenson and the Democratic Convention’s support. However after Stevenson's defeat in 1956, Democrats wanted a new, more youthful candidate. Stevenson's loss “helped set the stage for one of the most dramatic and memorable presidential campaigns in U.S. history” (Mehltretter).
