He says Dallas is in a position to be a part of the celebration of Kennedy's life, and shouldn't shy away from it. "Only Dallas can properly tell the story of this tragedy. We are in a unique position to be the preservers of history. This has been given to us and we have a chance to present it to the world. No other city is in such a unique position to tell the Kennedy story than Dallas. We are the torchbearer, more so than Washington D.C. or even Boston. We must take it and teach others. It is an awesome responsibility."
The exhibit is meant to present not just Kennedy as President, but Kennedy as a husband and father, and as a cultural transformative figure. "It is an awesome responsibility. This is a celebration of his life. He was perfect for the times. He was a phenomenal man."
