I was in my 6th grade class here in CA.
I was 14 years away from being born.
I had just come out of Geology class at the University of Tennessee, walking up to the snack bar on the hill, where a TV was on.
I then headed back to the frat house to watch the drama.
I was managing an unknown group of unknown notalents called the Beatles.
I remember....I was in my Homeroom English class...my teacher, a black, disabled, woman (in 1964!) stood at the front of the class as it was announced over the intercom that the President had been assassinated. Maybe some of us no longer think about it because....1) Kennedy’s image was a created one, that has since been debunked and 2) we are tired of the Kennedy’s.....and for the first time in 64 years there is to be NO KENNEDY in Congress! Farewell to the Kennedy’s....thank heaven.
I noticed that it passed this year with nary a mention, at least not that I say.
I was in study hall in the old high school, my junior year.
No, really, I was still hiding in Argentina at that time.
No basketball game or pep rally happened. They finally let us go home early after dither about what to do. Many people crying. All of us just in shock for four days. And glued to the TV.
Went to church on Sunday and missed the on air assassination of Oswald.
I still remember exactly where I was when the news was broadcast over the company intercom.
Also if Romney is still an abortionist, Obama is the killer in chief of every unborn fetus not wanted by the mother.
Interesting ... I was between Chemistry class and English class, freshman year at ETSU.
20 plus years from being born and not even an afterthought to my Dad and Mom.
My dad was assigned to Altus AFB (AFOSI) and that night he came home with a .38. He had done that during the Cuban Middile Crisis too. Never before, never after.
In the garage waxing my Ranchero listening to the radio when they broke in with news of the assassination, I was stunned and saddened though I was a Republican.
i was watching tv in my room. didn’t care much for his politics but felt awful. given more time i think he would have been a great president.
I was in my 7th grade class
Hahahahaaaa .. that was YOU ??!?!?
“Interesting ... I was between Chemistry class and English class, freshman year at ETSU.”
Yes, and also my freshman year.
Now where are my glasses???
