I could have stepped forward and touched JFK. He was passing slowly, in an open car, entering the Phoenix Park in 1963.
Security in those days, long ago before Lee Harvey Oswald and 9/11, meant little.
The US president looked happy. And we certainly were. Even as a boy I could sense that Kennedy's visit really meant something for Ireland. And it still does.
