Comments on: The worst day of JFK’s life http://blogs.reuters.com/berlin1961/2011/05/27/the-worst-day-of-jfks-life/ Kennedy, Khrushchev and the most dangerous place on Earth Wed, 31 Oct 2012 08:23:24 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: BajaArizona http://blogs.reuters.com/berlin1961/2011/05/27/the-worst-day-of-jfks-life/#comment-42 Fri, 27 May 2011 22:08:30 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/berlin1961/?p=122#comment-42 I clicked the link of course expecting to hear about the day Kennedy was shot and killed, as that would be the day that he lost everything past, present and future. Being murdered with a young family at the prime of your life would seem to be the worst day of most people’s life.

But when I realized the topic I had to agree with the author/headline writer (not always the same person, yet since this is an excerpt not an article I suspect it is).

This would be the day (arguably) that Kennedy failed to prevent the chain of events which would culminate in the nearest to extinction homo sapiens had ever come.

What could be worse than losing your life?

The death and extinction not only of civilization, but most living things, that would be worse.
