JFK, Aldous Huxley and CS Lewis

Today it's 47 years since these three men died. Most people will remember the day for JFK who I probably know least about - apart from what's speculated about his death.
Huxley painted a vision of a Brave New World, of what Neil Postman described as "amusing ourselves to death" (think #xfactor...) while Lewis invited us to step inside the sunbeam and look along it to see the reality by which we see everything. Each life has a legacy, though Lewis more than the others was able to offer substantial hope in the person of Jesus.
