For me the Eternal Flame at the John F Kennedy Memorial evoked feelings of respect, reverence, and remembrance and raised the unanswerable question of what could have been.

The grave is surprisingly modest given the other memorials in the area. Very difficult not to feel moved by the site or the surroundings. A place everyone should see.

I have wanted to see this for so long. It has a basic beauty to it. He is buried next to Jackie and 2 of their children. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from the entrance. Not to be missed.

It was nice to visit, also to see that Jackie's final resting place is with JFK . Sad to see 2 babies there. Such a loss. My thoughts are with all parents who have lost a child.

If you are very fit you certainly can walk anywhere especially the cemetery, but if you have any doubts look for transportation. It can be very warm depending on the season.
