     This Friday, in case you have been hiding up under a rock, marks the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F Kennedy in Dallas. Every time I see the Zapruder film (and right now, it seems like I see it every time I turn on the TV or log online) I can't help but think not only was he our President, but he was a father, a husband, a brother, a son and an uncle. And yes, I weep. 
     Dallas carried the "City of Hate" label for a very long time. I was born in Dallas in 1963, not quite a month after the tragedy. My Mom tells me at the time, people were still openly grieving where ever you went. Doesn't sound like a city of hate to me. But the label was hard to shake.

     The Dallas Cowboys and the TV show "Dallas" helped change that, but isn't that pathetic: a commercial football team and a television soap opera are what it took. I know better that this is not all we are about.
    The worlds media has descended upon us at this time of remembrance. Afterwards, what will the world write about us? What will we show them about Dallas now, Dallas 2013? Wouldn't it be a wonderful thing if Dallas came to be known for tolerance, art and acceptance? It's our Dallas now. What will we make of it?

"My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" - John F Kennedy.
