The accomplishments of JFK as president

,
Fifty years ago, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald while riding in a motorcade through downtown Dallas, Texas. Although his life was cut short, his legacy of supporting civil rights and American technological advancement still resonates today. 

This week's Do Now conversation is framed around how President Kennedy inspired a generation of scientists with his mission to be the first country to go to the Moon. 

Does your generation have a “Moon mission”? And if so, what does it look like? If not, what should it look like?
