Members of the Kennedy family on Friday (November 22) laid a wreath of remembrance at the gravesite of John F. Kennedy, the president who inspired a generation until he was felled by an assassin's bullet 50 years ago today November 22, 1963.

Jean Kennedy Smith, the sister of the late president, bowed her head in a solemn moment along with her children and grandchildren at President Kennedy's gravesite and eternal flame.

Kennedy was shot to death as he and his wife, Jacqueline, rode in a motorcade in Dallas. America has been awash in televised remembrances of the death of the vigorous 46-year-old president and subsequent killing of Oswald by nightclub owner Jack Ruby.
