JFK MEMORIAL GARDEN
153rd Ave, Miramar, FL.
I chose to plant this garden on this public walkway so that
everyone who passes can see it. John F Kennedy liked to golf in his spare time
and there is a golf course not too far from the garden. People who are walking
towards the golf course will pass the garden and see who it is dedicated to.
President Kennedy also liked to go sail boating in his spare time and was also
in the Navy. This garden is not that far from the beach either.
JFK was an important man in the history of Florida because
he not only stopped the Cuban missile crisis, but there is an entire space
station named after him—the Kennedy Space Center. The launch site opened in
1962 which was 1 year before his death and is located about half way between
Jacksonville and Miami on Florida’s Space Coast. The Kennedy family was a large
contributor to the studies of science which is why the launch site was named
I hope everyone who passes the garden will remember what a
great President he was and what he did for our country. Unfortunately his time
in office was short, but he is definitely one of the most memorable Presidents
this country has seen. So my choice to plant this garden of wild flowers in
this particular location has great meaning and thought behind it. President
John F Kennedy was an extraordinary American and I am glad to plant this garden
in such a way so the public can remember him.
