49 Years Ago Today

November 22, 1963 is a day I am sure all of us old enough remember vividly. It was the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

We visited Dealey Plaza and the site of the Texas Schoolbook Depository in 2010 and here are the two posts I made at that time:

Dealey Plaza

6th Floor


  1. I was in second grade. The old women who was teaching, broke down and had to leave the room. There were 45 kids in that classroom and not a peep came out of us while she pulled herself together-even in second grade, we could tell that the world had changed a bit.

  2. I was in 5th grade and I remember the reaction at school, at home and of the world through the TV.

  3. Jeez, normally I remember the date but this year, because of Thanksgiving I suppose, I'd forgotten. Wow. Thanks for the reminder.

    1. Don, it was the same for me! I was reminded by Bill's "One Day More" Blog and decided to add my own post.

  4. It was a very sad day for sure. I was 19 and at work when we heard the news. I still find the whole thing shocking.
