First Thoughts on Camelot
A flash back in time:

watching and listening
to Jackie Kennedy talk about
her days in the White House.
It was a different time for me,
still influenced by by staunchly 
Republican parents,
WASP was the term back then.
My parents were appalled by the fact
of a “Catholic” president…
Election night was one of the few
times I actually saw my mother
not even after her mother, 
then her father died did I see her
cry and sob like I did when
Jack Kennedy was announced the winner,
future President of the United States.
It dawns on me, I was just 17,
this being the fiftieth anniversary 
of his inauguration.
Not a rebel to my parents views,
just cautiously wondering to myself
why they thought the way they did,
and why did others think so
so differently from those close 
to me…
and why was I supposed
to not like them
or be friends with them ?
