Much has focused on Jackie's composure that held the nation together. For my family, the similarities between my sister's life and hers (although they definitely were not close in class status), were uncanny. When my great niece wrote a college paper on the subject, my sister said it was Jackie's actions that got her through her own agonies. It was little over a year later that her husband would be killed in an auto accident leaving her a widow with four children under the age of five. Our bond with the Kennedy mystique continues to this day.
