Where were you 50 years ago today?
All flags were at half mast today, 22 Nov 2013, as a Day of Remembrance for President John F. Kennedy. Kennedy was assassinated 50 years ago today in Dallas, Texas.
Most people who were alive in 1963 can remember where they were when they heard that President Kennedy had been assassinated. I was at the junior high school in Cortez, Colorado, which at that time was in the old Calkins School building. I remember standing in the hall with some friends between classes when a teacher came out of the classroom crying, "President Kennedy has been shot!" More students and teachers gathered out in the hall, many were crying.
