Profiles in Courage | John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Hot off the heels of a "president" that had no idea how government actually works and didn't actually care, this book is an impressive look at integrity within the system of government. Kennedy writes biographical essays about politicians who held true to their beliefs in the face of adversity. They did what they felt right, even when bullied by other politicians to conform.

BarbaraTheBibliophage Sounds like a good balance to our current state of affairs! 2y
SpiderGoddess @BarbaraTheBibliophage indeed! It is a very hopeful book. I recommend it. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @SpiderGoddess Thanks! I‘m surprised I‘ve never read it! 2y
Milara JFK barely contributed anything to this book. It was ghostwritten. I got so mad when i found this out, because i read a biography on him and it did not mention that, i found that out from another book. What kind of a poor excuse for a biography is that? 2y

This was one of the books I gleaned from my mother‘s bookcase, and it seems like the sort of book at least one of my parents would have read, so...

1. Something by the Beatles, maybe Yellow Submarine?
2. I got away to the beach for a few days, then I got back home safely.

Thanks for the tag! @Eggs

Cosmos_Moon Yay for beach days and # 1 is so classic and fun to sing along to 🥰 2y

I'm using this for Biography (3 way bingo) #jennyis30 @jenniferw88

President Kennedy researched 8 Senators that demonstrated unfailing courage - They responded to their hearts, their convictions, and not to what their constituents wanted.

This surprised me. I thought a voted person was held under obligation to be faithful to those who put them in office. They committed political suicide to vote for the nation's welfare, which is admirable.

This #audiobook was excellent. It's really interesting. JFK wrote this when he was a senator. It's about having the courage to speak up even when it might damage your political future.

I started a new #audiobook (tagged). Read by JFK Jr. It's about people that spoke up for what they believed in regardless of what it might do to their political careers. It's American history pre-1963, so a lot has happened in the meantime, but it's still super interesting.

Andrew65 Doing great 👏👏👏 3y

My non-fiction haul! (See previous post for fiction haul). Tagged book‘s jacket is a bit worn, but not bad for $1.50 and being an early edition.

It‘s been rainy— perfect for reading for the rest of today!

Kaye Ok eggs, going to look 👀 5y
Kaye Looks sharp to me. You are very pretty. Like Model Material. 5y
Eggs @Kaye I love you for saying that!!! But IRL I have scars and wrinkles (this was a makeover app/thingie from Facebook). But we'll let the 66+ old Egg Lady have a fantasy now and then, yes? 😘😘😘 5y
Kaye You certainly don‘t look 66. You look maybe 40 tops. I‘m 60 and look 100 but it‘s ok with me. I‘ve never been much interested in those things. You really are very pretty. 5y
Eggs Again @Kaye Thanks ever so much 😘😘😘 5y

I'm not sure what I expected this to be like, but I didn't expect it to give me such a new perspective on Congress and our government. I also think it may have helped me decide who I'm voting for. I love when books have such unexpected effects on me.

On the last page of the book, this one sentence made me feel like I can be just as courageous as these men.
