U.S. President John F. Kennedy was remembered as a transcendent leader of a rising nation at a ceremonies in the U.S., the 50th anniversary of his assassination, while bitterness remained for many who disbelieve the official story of how he died. "Our collective hearts were broken," Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings told a crowd of about 5,000 who came to a frigid Dealey Plaza, near where Kennedy was slain, for a commemoration marked with prayer, song and tears. Remembered fondly for his youthful vigor and his glamorous wife, Kennedy remains one of Americans’ favourite presidents for his handling of the Cuban missile crisis, his call to public service with programs such as the Peace Corps and a promise - later fulfilled - to land an American on the moon before the end of the 1960s.
