    Nov. 22, 1963 I was in Mr. Voris’s Mechanical Drawing class, 3rd Hall Denny Junior High, when all the class room phones rang informing the teachers who then informed the classroom that the President of the United States has just been shot.

    Amen.

    This quote is a profound reminder of what is so lacking in politics today: intelligence.

    Thanks for the visual.Mike. Just a mere 49 YEARS ago! Maybe what could have been. Gone too soon at the time…but not.

    I was but a twinkle in Mom’s eye when he was killed. I have always had a fascination with him and his life and have done a lot of reading and watching of documentaries of his life.

    I was watching it on TV and holding my son, my youngest of 4, and he turned 50 last June. He now has silver hair. Where’d the time go?

    better question

    what did we do with all of that time?

    sometimes i think nothing

    then i look around me and realize how very far we have come

    we have come so far that my granddaughters take for granted

    that which i fought for
