Had he lived, John F. Kennedy would turn 100 years old on May 29.
Caroline Kennedy, his only living child and a former ambassador to Japan, said on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" that as her father became further embedded in history, she wanted to mark the occasion by celebrating the legacy he left for her and her children as well as his place in history.
"He is a historical figure," Kennedy said. "100 years is a really long time, but I think his legacy and these values are timeless and they live on."
In the video, she reminisces about hiding under the Oval Office desk when she was a young girl, and sailing with her father. "I miss him every day of my life. But, growing up without him was made easier thanks to all of the people who kept him in his hearts," she said.
Kennedy told CNN that she could feel from others that he "was part of everyone's life," and she said she has noticed parallels from the issues her father grappled with to this point in time.
