November 22, 1963

Tomorrow is the 55th anniversary of JFK's assassination. Due to it landing on the holiday, it won't garner as much attention as it should, but people remember.

In 1963, November 22nd fell on a Friday. Thanksgiving was the following week. A day with anticipation for the weekend, the holiday, and the kick-off for the holiday season overall.

No one guessed that the day and weekend would turn into a nightmare.

So long ago, yet I still remember exactly where I was when I heard the news and who it was who told us. I was in 5th grade class, and the school secretary hurried in and asked the teacher to turn on the tv (only the 5th grades had them.) Such a sad day.

We heard it over the radio, my mother and I. My sister was too little to know what was going on. I was too young for school but remember it clear as a bell. It was the first time I'd ever seen my mother cry. :(
