Flook I feel that after World War 2 a lot of things in the world started to change and affected each person differently I feel that the events that took place between the 1950s and the 1990s all had extremely powerful effects on the American people. World war two was a big eye opened for people and is still talked about this day and age and I feel that the events that took place afterwards all to this day affect us as people and U.S. citizens very highly. 1950s- Eisenhower’s Presidency (1953-1961) Eisenhower made a stable economy and fought to balance the budget.

(Resource #2- First URL on my works cited page on bottom) 1960’s – Kennedys Presidency (1961-1963) I feel that Kennedy was trying it all! He was trying to accomplish things from the Civil Rights, Space program, Price fixings and other things. In other words, he was trying to renew Americas place and prestige the nation. The Soviets, had gained much power prestige and influence. The USA needed to be shook up. There were a lot of problems at home, and a lot of reluctance on the part of many to do anything about them. Some of the problems that took place at homes were equal rights for Blacks and women, education, and poverty. Kennedy also, gave people a visible high tech and imaginative mission that people could watch on television, in results the space race. The New Frontier was JFK’s hope to unite the people and to do great, amazing things. Overall, Kennedy wanted to boost the economy and to provide better social welfare programs, and to boost the space program. He had the nation’s people’s best interest in his mind.
