During his presidency, Kennedy launched economic programs to take on issues like poverty. He also was determined to get all Americans equal rights. He had a vision of world peace as well. He knew that something had to be done here at home as well as around the world. All his plans were cut short because of his assassination. Most of his plans did not get to be put into place.
