I was 4 then. I remember the funeral horse and pageantry.

I was in my high school biology class when the teacher came back from the teachers lounge where he'd been smoking and told us the President had been shot. Shortly after that, we changed classes and I went to study hall. There were about 150 of us in study hall (it was a very big school), and one of the two teachers in charge announced that while we weren't supposed to have transistor radios, she knew that some of us did. "Would those who have radios please turn them to (such-and-such radio station) and turn the volume up." That's how we all heard that President Kennedy was dead.

Coincidentally, my DH and I rented "Parkland" and watched it this morning. We both shed tears as we watched. Don't you wonder how our lives would have been different if he had not been assassinated? How the world would have been different? Would the USA ever have gotten all that involved in Viet Nam?

Never, EVER give up. Just pick yourself up and keep going.

I was ten years old when the head of our school came in and told us the president had been shot. We were sent home and, as young as we were, we feared the Russians would invade us because of his death. I don't know about the "end of Camelot" as it was called, but it certainly seemed to be the beginning of a violent, disturbing period in our nation.

I was 13 years old living in Scotland where Dad was stationed with the Navy. We watched and listened to the TV in shock. -- Lou

Oddly enough, I don't remember where I was. At that time, I was in the third grade so I just don't remember any details BUT I DO remember where I was and what I was doing when his brother, RFK, was assassinated five years later.

50 Years Later, the Kennedy Assassination Still Haunts a Generation---------------this is the heading of an article I just read and I thought it would be interesting to hear if you can remember where you were or what you were doing when you first heard this terrible news.

I remember that I had just got in from writing my high school final exams and was shocked and even distressed on hearing the news on the radio.

Prov. 3: 5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE shall direct your paths.

...But you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love
