Do You Remember… JFK Assassination
It was 50 years ago this Friday that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
What do you remember about that tragic day? A lot of MLCers I talked to said they remember school getting out early as this national crisis unfolded.
Me, I must’ve been in Kindergarten. I don’t remember anything at all about that day. But I could imagine how traumatic it must’ve been. For an event of this magnitude – at such a wholesome time – it would be hard to fathom. And JFK was so well liked. There was so much hope for America when JFK was the President. It almost seems as though America started going downhill after the loss of JFK.
There are many conspiracy theories bouncing around out there. For example, some say that we were headed for nuclear war if JFK had continued as President. But we don’t know that. And we never will.
I still believe that he was one of – if not thee – greatest Presidents of the US.
What are your memories of that day when we lost one of our greatest Presidents?
