Remembering John F. Kennedy and C.S. Lewis - November 22, 1963


C.S. Lewis



John F. Kennedy

45 years ago today, John F. Kennedy and C.S. Lewis died. Two of my heroes and inspirations died on the same day. My own interest in politics, and faith, and writing, and justice were all impacted by these two individuals, and I am quite surprised that I hadn't noticed until this evening that they died on the same day. Though I was born a few years after their deaths, I remember them fondly, and am thankful for their presence among us and their legacies.

~ The Rev. Peter M. Carey
