I was in 8th grade History class on that Monday. Our principal went from classroom to classroom to announce Reagan had been shot. We didnt have radio or TV in the classroom so our teacher went out and wheeled his pickup truck to the classroom window and cranked up the radio so we could listen to the news. By then it was known that he would survive. Everyone was relieved but quiet and subdued. Later that night the NCAA basketball championship between Indiana and North Carolina aired. During a pre game prayer they showed a cheerleader crying. That whole afternoon and evening was surreal. I can only imagine how our country would have done if we lost President Reagan that day.
