Dear Ellie and James," Kennedy said. “This is a moment that you’ll read about in your history books.

“I want you to know that it does not feel good. I can’t stop thinking about the cost to our country…
“I don’t yet know how they will tell the story of this era, but I want to tell you the story of this day.
