God – Today, I give thanks for the release of the Kennedy assassination papers which have long been sealed from public view. Like many others, I never believed the death of this President was the act of one deranged man, Lee Harvey Oswald. This week that fact was confirmed in one of the newly released documents. This record stated that, before the assassination, Jack Ruby asked an FBI informant if he wanted to see the fireworks in Dallas as President Kennedy’s motorcade was to proceed in front of the Book Depository. It is clear to me that Ruby did not kill Oswald because he had shot Ruby’s beloved President. It was rather done to silence Oswald forever–who had referred to himself as a patsy.
As we sadly recall another anniversary of this dreaded day in Dallas when the heart of an American President stopped beating and the hope he represented to the world was stilled, I pray that one day the truth will be fully revealed. I pray that we will have the courage to know and face the depth and breadth of what actually transpired.
Dear Lord, may Your love overcome the hatred which claimed our President. May You cause to be revealed the secrets which have been hidden from us for far too long.
In our current President’s release of the remaining papers and the previously unspoken words from the lips of the few remaining, living assassination witnesses, may we honor President John F. Kennedy and hold up his legacy of leadership to the light of eternal truth. Amen
