I was alive then but too young to remember - still in diapers. Would have loved to have lived the 1960s as an adult. So much happened that decade and I missed almost all of it because I was just a little kid.
I was a high school freshman when the assassination happened. Our principal came on the intercom and said JFK had been shot, then switched in the local radio station which was an ABC affiliate. Their broadcast ran until the president’s death was more or less confirmed.
At 3:30, I got on the bus for the ride home and noticed our bus driver had tears in his eyes.

I guess you’re not watching the news. There were riots after the assassinations in those years except for JFK’s and protests in every major city/college campus over the Vietnam war. Those pukes ended up running the government(s). Check out Jane Fonda and her ever lovin’ commie husband if you want to get the real picture of what the sixties were like.
It’s playing out in the streets again and believe me, it’s not pleasant to see now nor was it then. We haven’t seen women burning their bras yet but I’m sure whatever “they” have cooked up will be a lot more horrendous than that. We won’t see the end of this rabble in the streets as long as Trump is in office. It’s well planned and well financed. And they’ll continue to be encouraged by the creep leaving the WH in January.
