Thirteen Days in October: The Cuban Missile Crisis has been named as Squidoo's Lens of the Year!
Many thanks to all who voted for this lens!
Several years ago, I had the opportunity to sit down over dinner with Ted Sorenson, one of President Kennedy's closest advisors. We discussed the Cuban Missile Crisis at length and it was obvious to me as we spoke, that this singular event had a profound and enduring effect on him--to this day. This seminal event in our nation's history continues to be studied at all of our nation's war colleges and universities. Those discussions, public and private, prompted me to craft this lens.
I'm honored to have Thirteen Days in October: The Cuban Missile Crisis named Lens of the Year. And I'm humbled-- there are so many supremely talented lensmasters with superb lenses on Squidoo. They routinely inspire and educate and enlighten. So, for me, it's a great privilege to be a part of the Squidoo community!
