With flags fluttering at half-staff, the United States paused yesterday to mourn President John F. Kennedy and a generation's shattered dreams, cut down 50 years ago by an assassin's bullet.


The young leader's brutal death, a dark turning point even in an era gripped by the Cold War nuclear stand-off and bloodshed in the jungles of Vietnam, shocked a global audience of millions.


Five decades on the wound is still raw, with many still obsessed by the conspiracy theories surrounding his death, and others gripped by regret for the America they imagine might have been.
