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."
