Do you remember the Kennedy Assassination?
My mother still remembers where she was, what she was doing and who she was with.
No. I had yet to be born. But, I have studied the assassination and have concluded there was no way that Oswald acted alone.
Yes, on the sidewalk in kindergarten. Had no idea what was being said over the intercom, but suddenly a powerful gush of energy went through me that froze my body to its core. Although I didn't know it at the time, Evil won a very big victory over Good that day. It was palpable in the very air itself. That's how strong it was. And JThomp42, you couldn't be more correct in your assumptions.
Yes, you can read my answer under Comments of Mr Archer's hub on this very same subject.
Yes. I was in second grade and I remember it like it was yesterday.
I was too young to remember the incident itself but I do recall the sadness in my home, my grandmother in particular. What I do remember vividly is watching the funeral on television. I have visual and emotional memory for the funeral procession and the sound of the drums. To this day, every time I hear those drums, I can feel the loss. It's amazing how we remember as toddlers.
I recall it very well, even though I was in grade school. It was as if everyone was numb and as if nobody really knew what anyone "was supposed to" do.
My mother had planned to take my sister and me into Boston the following day, because we were going to do some Christmas shopping. After the President was killed my mother went back and forth a little about whether we should still go. I guess she figured it might be good to go ahead with the plans, maybe because we'd spent that day before, watching such awful coverage.
We took the elevator train into Boston, and the President's picture could be seen as the train went underground. It was a gray day with snow falling, and the President's picture was in the window of Jordan Marsh, where we were planning to shop. Downtown Boston was quiet, and we felt like it had been a mistake to even go there; so we didn't stay long. People on the train just sat there in silence.
It was eerie and, again, we were just kind of numbed and at a loss for what we ought to be doing. Other people I know who recall that day have said that, to this day, they get nervous on Inauguration Day when a President walks for awhile, outside the car. They/we think how we wish whatever President it is would hurry up and get somewhere that seems safer. When that walk is over people will generally feel like they can breathe a sigh of relief. That's no how people should feel, of course; but no matter how long it's been, that's how a lot of people do feel.
Yes I do, I was also in second grade that day and I remember we all got sent home early.
