JFK (The 50th Anniversary)

http://www.50thhonoringjohnfkennedy.com/

I'm not sure how I feel about Dallas honoring JFK on the 50th anniversary of his death, but I suppose it's better than the city ignoring it.

November 22nd falls on a Friday this year just as it did in 1963.

vintage_ads will be holding a one-day event on November 22nd to post JFK-inspired ads.

I better get started on my essay about November 22, 1963. I know a lot of people don't care but a lot of people do. It was an event that left the country numb for four days and for a lot longer than that. JFK was certainly no saint but I'm glad he was in office during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis!

Thank you! I've been wanting to write this essay for awhile and the 50th anniversary seems like the right time to do it.

Wow, I can't believe it's been that long. I clearly remember being in school and someone from the school office walking into class and telling our teacher about it. I was too young (only 4) to really know what was happening, but I felt the sudden change in the air, like a jolt of electricity, and knew that it was something terrible.

Half a century is pretty stunning, isn't it?

I remember that day as the first time I saw my mother cry. :( She heard the news over the kitchen radio and she turned on the TV and all weekend, it stayed on. Dad heard it when he was driving and pulled over to listen for awhile. My sister was a baby so doesn't remember anything.
