A. I hope they support it as an essential step to honoring John Kennedy by prompting release of ALL records still withheld pertaining to the assassination. Perhaps they may even open wide the doors of the Kennedy Center for those peacefully and respectfully gathered towards that end; not to suggest any unwelcome use or occupation of the Kennedy Center facility itself, only quiet and respectful use of the adjoining public plaza. Actually, those who direct the Kennedy Center could call the White House, or elsewhere - even today - and prompt immediate release of ALL as yet undisclosed records, precluding any reason for this vigil to ever begin - in the public plaza adjoining the Kennedy Center, in Dallas, or elsewhere, for that matter.
Q. Why seek the records? To persecute those once involved and still living?
A. No. Release of the records is essential to reversing the trend since John Kennedy's murder towards ever greater secrecy in government. Transparency, restoring of respect for and adherence to the Constitution and its processes is essential. For those fearing retribution for their historical actions, or inactions related to John Kennedy's assassination and subsequent cover-up, they should be shown God's grace: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God." (John 3:16-21)
Q. Should Americans be afraid to assemble for such a vigil, in Washington, D.C.?
A. "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." (1John 4:18). None should be afraid to peacefully assemble, seeking release of the records and restoration of our Constitutional Republic.
Q. Who are you? What has encouraged your conceptualization and communication of this idea? '
A. Karl Golovin, Email address removed , @KarlGolovin . By God's grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. The seminar in non-violence at The Gandhi Institute, Rochester, New York, www.gandhiinstitute.org. And I just visited the Kennedy Center gift shop, finding a refrigerator magnet that portrays, in red and blue letters on a white background, this quote attributed to John Kennedy: "One person can make a difference, and everyone should try."
