Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis is a true American style and culture icon. While first lady during the presidency of her husband John F. Kennedy, Onassis became known for her intelligence, beauty, style, and devotion to her country. Onassis focused on making the world a better place through art, literature, and history and being a good mother to her children. CR remembers Kennedy by taking a look at some of our favorite quotes by the former first lady.
Anonymous: Mental problems are NOT the only reason people are living on the streets. I am 78 yrs. old, worked all my life after high school and had good, avg.-paying jobs. I now live on social security, which until two years ago, was fine. I had a nice small apt., paid the normal utilities, etc. Then the cost of apts. in my city went through the roof, with no warning. We are now covered up in high-price housing that people like me can no longer afford. Example: rent went from $495/mo. to $675/mo. One more rent increase and I'll be on the street...literally. I'm old, not married, no children...which all goes against my situation. Most of you will say the common things like why didn't you save. why don't you have family, why didn't you get higher paying jobs, why, why, why. It's because I have always been low income, but have paid my way and haven't asked anyone for anything....until now. What do the millions of people like me do now? We can't afford to live in America.
