OT Where were you 11/22/1963

Post by catclr » Thu Nov 22, 2018 9:20 am

How many remember where they were 55 yrs. ago, on today's date, 11/22/1963.
I was in 11th grade, & was in band when the whole school got the word over the PA system, that President John F. Kennedy had been shot.

Entering the band room and seeing a girl crying. Seared into my memory.

I didn't appear in this lifetime until 1969.. :)
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of truth is at hand.

I was home sick from school being baby sat by my cousin Barbara. Was using my dad's Studebaker bob tail truck as a blind to shoot sparrows from with my BB gun. I wasn't too sick!!

We were living in Vernon, TX at the time. It's about 190 miles or so from Dallas.

Barbara came out and told me that President Kennedy had been shot.

Home. In Salt Lake City.
I still remember Ma crying, and Pa cursing as the news came over our old B&W TV (with all of TWO channels)!
A Sad Day Indeed! :(

Mrs. Willifords second grade class room. They made an announcement on PA system, sent us home early. My Dad came home from work early. My Dad NEVER missed a bit of work, so I knew something was REALLY bad.

I was in elementary school. They had the students out to listen to the announcement and watch the flag brought down to half mast.
It is better to be thought a fool than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt

If you think there's a great conspiracy, there isn't other than the one running in circles in your head
