In Dallas, somber and thoughtful ceremonies were set for Friday afternoon to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who was gunned down on Nov. 22, 1963, as his open-air motorcade traveled through the city.
Bells were expected to toll throughout Dealey Plaza, where sniper Lee Harvey Oswald fired upon Kennedy, who was traveling with his wife, Jacqueline, and Texas Gov. John Connally and his wife, Nellie. The death of Kennedy, the nation's youngest president, plunged the word into mourning, and even today he continues to remain a figure of hope and unity.
Historian David McCullough was scheduled to read passages from Kennedy's speeches, including his much-repeated call to service made during his 1961 inaugural address: "Ask not what your country will do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."

As the nation prepares to commemorate the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, it is worth remembering that we are not just mourning a death but also celebrating a remarkable life.
Our friends at LIFE recently discovered in their archives a series of rare and never-published photographs of President Kennedy in the autumn of 1963, some taken the day of Kennedy's assassination and others snapped in the weeks and months that preceded the murder.
They are portraits of a leader at the peak of his powers, and a lasting tribute to a presidency that was flourishing prior to Dealey Plaza.

When Jackie Kennedy returned to the White House in her bloodstained Chanel suit at 4 a.m. on Nov. 23, she took the elevator up to her private quarters on the third floor.
There, she sat in her bedroom and quietly confided her deepest fears to her personal assistant, Providencia Paredes, who was always by her side.
"She was scared," Paredes, 89, tells PEOPLE in a rare interview. "She cried and she said, 'I thought they might kill me too.'"
