Friday: Fifty Years Later

23 Nov

King Arthur: [singing] Don’t let it be forgot / That once there was a spot / For one brief shining moment / That was known as Camelot!
Fifty years have gone by and many things have been forgotten, but if you are of a certain age, probably fifty-five or older, you remember where you were and what you were doing when you heard about the Kennedy assassination. It was a time of hope, possibilities, and Camelot. Then it all came crashing down. Today was an appropriately cold and drizzly day in Dallas. You couldn’t help but be reminded of the event, with every television station reporting, commenting, and interviewing people. It was a sad day in 1963 and a sad day today.

Where were you?
