Nov. 22, 1963: Where were you when Kennedy was shot?


... Once home we all just turned on our TVs and watched with horror the whole scene played out ... and we all saw another horror as Lee Oswald was shot.

Our lives were changed forever, as that was the end of our safety net. No more will we ever feel that feeling that everything will be OK, no matter what happens. No more will we feel that feeling that we will achieve whatever we set out minds to do. No more can we trust anyone, as the cops had shuffled Lee Harvey Oswald out the door to tons of press, not to mention whoever else was outside the door. No more can a president ever feel safe among a crowd of people. ...

Life is no longer the same and never will be.
