During his electoral battle tour in the south of the States, John F. Kennedy visited Dallas (Texas) on November 22, 1963. On his arrival at 1140 hours, he was warmly welcomed by the people of Dallas. Kennedy, Governor John Connally and their wives sat down in the limousine of the President which led the motorcade through the town.

I remember. I still think LBJ was behind it.
I remember it well, it was two weeks shy of my birth....../S
I remember it well—I lived in Dallas at the time.
Yep, ten at the time. We were off school that day for parent teacher conferences.
I was 12. School closed and we went home that afternoon.
CIA was behind it.
It was a jealous husband.
CIA, LBJ, the Mob, all had a part in it.
I was a Sophomore in High School in Marshalltown Iowa. I can pretty tell everything I did that day.
Yes. A surreal day, like 911.
Hmmm... Nothing to see here; just move along...
“In the three-year period which followed the murders of President Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald, 18 material witnesses died - six by gunfire, three in motor accidents, two by suicide, one from a cut throat, one from a karate chop to the neck, three from heart attacks and two from natural causes. In the late 1970s, the House Select Committee on Assassinations felt compelled to look into the matter. The Committee was unable to come to any conclusion regarding the growing number of deaths. However, an objective look at both the number and the causes of death balanced against the importance of the person’s connection to the case, raises concern.”
Thats pretty young.
I was stationed at Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls, Tx. The base was on high alert and we were confined to base. Spent the whole weekend watching the events on TV.
I was in I think second grade. School closed and mom and dad came and picked us up.
Then I was watching TV what was it two days later when Ruby shot Oswald, and I think it was actually broadcast live.
Dallas. Wow. That must have been quite traumatic for you and the citizens.
I was in 2nd grade. The teacher told us. I remember going to church in the middle of the week.
It was about 13 years before I was downloaded.
I remember it as if it happened 500 years ago.
I was 3 and 1/2. I was taking a nap and woke up to hear my mom crying in the next room. It frightened me and I woke up my sister and we went to see what the problem was.
I was at Church and missed the live broadcast. Always has been a disappointment to me.
I was 7. Our teacher was so upset she had to leave and we were let out of school early.
There was no crying in my house. But we were glued to the TV for four straight days.
Much like when the Challenger blew up, too.
It was traumatic to lose a then popular commander-in-chief. Thank you for your service to our country.
That’s kind of the problem, because you can’t say “The gummint did it...” any more than you can say “The gummint is hiding UFO’s.”
Really??? The gummint is hiding UFO’s? All 3+ million people who work for the federal gummint are hiding UFOs? The janitor who sweeps the floor at the capitol has a UFO hidden in his garage?
Whatever it was, it was a rogue subset of people. And I suspect CIA, various Cuban factions, the mafia had a hand.
But one thing is totally obvious. Oswald may have been involved thinking he was the one or whatever, but he DID NOT act by himself, there were multiple shooters.
“Back and to the left. Back and to the left.”
(Just stirring up the discussion a bit.)
BIG FLAME SUIT ON, because as soon as you say what I said, they always come crawlin out of the woodwork...
Oswald was the perfect fall guy. And he his his rifle in John Kerry’s cousin’s garage.
I remember my mother crying, too.
Yes, I was in the 9th grade-my speech teacher, Mr. Larsen came to class and told us President Kennedy had been shot.
We thought he was joking. When he said he was not, we all became very quiet.
In 1988, twenty-five years later Mr. Larsen and I were teaching at the same college. I sought him out and reminded him of that day. He remembered coming to our class and giving us the news.
Ditto sophomore....the teacher of the bookkeeping class gave us the word mid-session; I don’t recall who came in to advise him.
Nahhh....... it was jackie ( hell hath no fury like that of a woman scorned )
So you and your teacher came around full circle - bound by tragedy. Thanks for sharing.
The press was getting ready to go public with the story about JFK’s communist spy girlfriend. What would that have done to the Democrat party in the early 60s? The Democrats killed their own President to save the party.
Yes I do remember. We lived in the middle of nowhere on a ranch, didn’t know anything about it until my mom and her friend and I went to pick up my brother and others from the school bus. We heard it on the radio while waiting for the bus. I don’t remember why I didn’t go to school that day. The schools had let out early after the news of the assasination but the bus kids had been held until normal dismissal because there was no way to notify all the rural parents.
My dad was always convinced of that too.
There was only one shooter. That has been shown. Oswald acted alone.
What about the Trilateral Commission, can’t have a good conspiracy theory without including them.
Or: the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergers and the Masons.
But... perhaps I've said too much.
What a different time that was.
Hey, here’s a new theory. It wasn’t LBJ,it wasn’t the CIA, it wasn’t Castro, it wasn’t the mob...it was...a lone gunman namely Lee Harvey Oswald, a disgruntled Marxist sympathizer who got a less than honorable discharge from the USMC and who attempted to kill General Edwin Walker 7 months before he assassinated Kennedy. I know it’s crazy but I thought I’d just throw it out there.

Oswald Acted Alone.
I remember it well - eleven years old and the principal’s secretary came in to our sixth grade classroom with a radio, whispered something to our teacher who announced JFK had been killed. A couple of kids started to cry and the chain-smoking terminal spinster biddy got mad and told them to stop that, no reason to get upset, etc. They dismissed school early and I remember my mom shaking her head with sadness when she saw me coming up the driveway - then came the LBJ debacle.
Oh come on, Oswald didn’t act alone, it was the CIA who did it. I know this because I saw the Oliver Stone movie, “JFK” and that movie clearly showed showed the CIA’s involvement. And I BELIEVE Oliver Stone!
According this it’s Bush’s fault> LOL I kid you not.
