Default November 22, 1963, Where Were You

I was in my 9th grade speech class. Suddenly the PA came on and they were playing a radio station they announced that President Kennedy had died in Dallas. It was just before 2 PM here in Michigan. School was let out and there were lots of girls and a few guys crying openly. I walked home and mom had the TV on. Even though she did not vote for him she was deeply saddened. Mom and Dad contemplated driving us to DC to view the casket but they decided against it. We spent the next few days glued to the TV. It was then a very sad time and still is to this day.

I still believe there was more than one shooter. It is a day I hope this country never ever has to go through again. JFK was the last great democratic president. None of the dems since have come close.
