"Show me a hero and I will write you a tragedy." - F. Scott Fitzgerald

I can't believe it was 10 years ago.

below is an excerpt from a beautifully written memoir.
i highly highly recommend reading it.
i fell in love with the Kennedys and felt like I knew Carolyn Bessette, as only a good book can do.

*the author was married to JFK Jr.'s cousin. She recalls speaking to Carolyn, and making plans for the next day:

"I hung up the phone and opened the book I was reading, and an hour later she was dead. Afterward I tried to find something to explain what had happened--was it cloudy, were the stars out? But the night was ordinary. It usually is. I think, when your life changes. Most people aren't doing anything special when the carefully placed pieces of their life break apart."

-Carole Radziwill
