The murders of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., the resignation of Richard Nixon, the final evacuation at the bitter end of the Vietnam War, the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger, the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and the killing of Osama bin Laden are certainly days that captured the nation’s conscience and brought us together in a mutual reaction.

But none of them seem to linger so vividly as JFK’s assassination.
