There cannot ever be another Jackie — her singularity is what made her sui generis, unique. But this should not discourage us. Instead, we can study Jackie’s life and the choices she made at each turn, as student, young mother, first lady, widow, and working woman, and work to make our own lives the best they can be. This, after all, is true Jackie Style.

“Sometimes it almost seems that he is trying to protect me instead of just the other way around…There was that day last November, the day of the anniversary. As the two of us walked home from school, I noticed that a little group of children, some of them from John’s class, was following us. Then one of the children said, quite loud, ‘Your father’s dead…your father’s dead!’ You know how children are. Well, this day John listened to them saying it over and over, and he didn’t say a word. He just came close to me, took my hand, and squeezed it. As if he were trying to reassure me that things were all right. And so we walked home together with the children following us.”
