Do you remember when Pres. Kennedy was Shot?
November 22, 2012 will mark 49 years since President Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas, Texas by Lee Harvey Oswald. Do you remember that day? I was in my Freshman year in Latin Class of a Catholic High School. Mother Florence, our principal, annouced over the PA system that the President had been shot. At that time we didn't know how bad President Kennedy was. Our teacher led us in prayer then we returned to our lesson. Shortly, Mother Florence announcced that the President had died. We were to go to the auditorium where a Mass would be held. After Mass the buses were there and we went home. As this happened on a Friday, it was the last we were in school for over a week. At the time, I think we all went through what the Kennedy family did. TV was big then and everything from the shoting to the funeral was on. I can still remember Jacqueline Kennedy getting off Air Force One in the blood stained pink suit that she was wearing. I can remember their son, John Kennedy Jr, just a child, saluting as his father's casket came by. Also remember Oswald getting shot. I can always remember the date, because it happened the day after my Birthday-something I never forgot. There are things in life that happen that we never forget. Do you remember that day? Marilyn
