The year is 1963 and E.T. is shown taking a break from building this statue to honor local and national politicians he admired. One of the politicians is President John F. Kennedy who was assassinated that year. Estes Kefauver, senator from Tennessee, and Patrick Henry,the patriot, were other political figures he admired. Robert Kennedy was added six years later in 1969.
