Editor's Pick

On Nov. 22, there will be many attempts to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of former U.S. president John F. Kennedy. This poignant effort created out of The Martin Agency and Tool for the JFK Presidential Library hopes to shift the focus from the the way Mr. Kennedy died, to the way he lives on.

"An Idea Lives On" is the latest project from the Library, and is collecting the stories of the people and places who in some way embody Mr. Kennedy. The stories include those of two young teens named after the President, President Obama's inaugural poet, Richard Blanco, who expresses a connection to Mr. Kennedy and talk show host Conan O'Brien who talks about the nation's first Irish-Catholic president.

You also have the chance to add your own audio, video, images, or text. Curators of the library will select which pieces make it in, and if yours does, you will be given a special link to view the film so you can share it with family and friends. When you click the link, your contribution will appear first -- no forwarding required. Read more about the project in behind the work.
