All you need is love, JFK

A shop front: a table with a sign that says "All you need is love", a statue of an ange, a cherub statue and the book, "The Kennedys Portrait of a family" by Richard Avedon.

Late last year I visited Youghal on a Sunday. Most of the shops were closed, including this one but the display in front caught my eye.

JFK is still highly regarded by many people who don’t know how unfaithful he was to his wife, and maybe they do know and ignore that part of him. I thought the juxtaposition of a sign saying “All you need is love” right next to a photo of a famous philanderer and his wife was delicious.
