Next month on November 22, will mark the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. I realize this will date me, but I thought it might be interesting to see what those who do remember it remember about it, what they were doing, whatever. It is one of those dates that people always remember where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news. Personally, I was in the 7th grade at the time. Shortly after lunch that day, an announcement came over the loudspeaker system that we were all supposed to leave our classes and report to our home rooms. A little while after we got there, our teacher, Mrs. Johnson came into the room, did not say a word, but started writing on the blackboard JFK's famous quote "Ask not what your country.....". When she finished, she went to her desk and sat down but didn't say anything for a few minutes. It was obvious that she was having difficulty speaking, or deciding what she wanted to say. Finally, she looked up and told us that the President had been shot in Dallas, and had died. She said school was being dismissed for the day, and as soon as the bus drivers could make it to the school, we all would be sent home. She said the school was contacting as many of our parents as possible, and announcements were going out over radio and tv. That night of course, all that was on tv was the news of the assassination. It was a pretty scary time. A couple of days later, my family and I came home from church, and as always, my sister and I were on the floor in front of the tv while my mom made lunch. Not long after we started watching, a special news bulletin came on from Dallas because the police were moving Oswald from one jail to another or something. My dad told my mom to get in the room because that was big news. We all sat there, and of course saw Jack Ruby shoot Oswald live on national tv. I remember my parents being really upset about that because of course it was the 60's and they weren't too keen on their kids seeing a murder live on tv.
