I often wonder whether he could have been indeed assassinated for the attempted UFO disclosure.

The future will find them presently, and change too.
But looking only one way at a time will spare them becoming cross-eyed. Think

From Kennedy's June 25th,1963 - Address in the Assembly Hall at the Paulskirche in Frankfurt.
www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=9303
"But Goethe tells us in his greatest poem that Faust lost the liberty of his soul when he said to the passing moment: "Stay, thou art so fair." And our liberty, too, is endangered if we pause for the passing moment, if we rest on our achievements, if we resist the pace of progress. For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future."

But the passing moment comes from the future, becomes neglected in the present to languish, before it succumbs to the past in anguish.
