I was going to a private girl's school with an alma mater that began, "In thy pillared portals" So the main entrance had to have pillars. I was outside those pillars. It was a Friday afternoon, and school let out early. Tghe carpool mother for the day pulled up. I don't remember who she was, but I'll always remember that she got out of the car and asked her daughter, "Guess what?" The daughter answered "What?" The mother said, "The president's been shot". I thought she was joking.   All the way home we told each other that he was young and strong and he'd get better.
Mother told us what last rites were.
My sister's birthday is November 25. She often got it off from school, because of Thanksgiving. But never before or since on a Monday. Grandma and Grandaddy came early that day, so we could watch the funeral together. Odd to think, Grandma could remember McKinley's funeral, and Harding's, and Roosevelt's. (Note: McKinley was killed by an anarchist named Leon Cszogloz. Harding and Roosevelt died of natural causes.) Cszogloz, whose name I probably misspelled, acted alone, as did Charles Guiteau who shot James Garfield. I expect Oswald worked alone.

Ironically the rock and pop scene was getting underway with a new freedom of thought and expression so it surprises me that as he was a bit of an icon more wasn't done to protect him. Standing and waving in an open top car wasn't the brightest thing to let him do. Perhaps the whole thing was set up from someone inside, which might explain how Oswald could be the lone killer if he indeed was the one.

This page says J.Edgar Hoover send Bobby and Jack Kennedy a constant stream of derogatory information about Martin Luther King, Jr., in an attempt to turn the Kennedys against King. We've all heard the stories about King and his marital infidelity and other issues - is it possible that these are all lies from J.Edgar Hoover?

The private school we went to let out early on Fridays. The carpool mom of the day, pulled up and said to her daughter "Guess what?" The daughter said, "What?" her mother said, "The president's been shot!'

I thought it was some kind of family in joke.

I was mistaken. I was 8, when this was going on. My sister turned 7 on the day of his funeral.

There are many folks who were not alive when this happened. I suspect in twenty years or so, the anniversary will be seen much like the assassination of other historic figures in the world. No one will be there to post their personal memories of when they heard it in the media.

I was in first year at college (in Canada) when the news came. They played the radio news over the P.A. system. Classes were cancelled for the remainder of the day. We all went home.

Being sent home seems to be a common response to the event. I wonder why? Was there some directive that those in charge were following? Was there a fear that something worse was about to happen?

I was a high school sophomore in French 2 when a senior came into the classroom and whispered something to the teacher. Seniors in study hall had been pulled out to deliver the message to the teachers. Our French teacher was an eccentric woman. Normally I enjoy eccentric people, but this one was rude to students who struggled to learn French. Luckily, I was at least adequate in the subject so did not incur her wrath, but I disliked how she treated others. After the senior whispered to her, the teacher pulled a face and said, loud enough for all of us to hear, "In the head?" The senior nodded. Later the principal came on the intercom and told us what had happened and that we should all go to our lockers, get our things, and go home. A few students had cars. Some others took the city's public buses. Most of us walked. I remember feeling like I was in a fog for the entire walk home.

As a teacher, I was on the other side of the desk when the Challenger shuttle exploded and when the World Trade Center was destroyed.

Henry, if you'd ever given Greg a chance to express his views, you'd see the man behind the posts. He is a well-read, lucid, intelligent man who has a great love of American literature and American history. He and I have been good friends for more years than I remember.

He was encouraging to me at the lowest ebb of my life. I trust him without reservation. As a btw, a zinger to my old friend was interrupted by your post. That was just not a good thing to do. Capiche? I had the best set-up line in the history of Mudcat and now it's fucked.

Yes, Carlos Marcello was deported by Bobby Kennedy.

It was a rude "grab 'n' go" type deportation that infuriated Marcello.

I think he was born in Tunisia of Sicilian parents, but he held a Guatamalan passport.

Bobby sent him to Guatamala.

For the loss to the world, Huxley's and Lewis' deaths meant much more, for they had accomplished much. To America (and to the world) Kennedy's was the death of promise unfulfilled, and that is the saddest death.

The Mob took out Kennedy because of the abuse they were subjected to by Bobby Kennedy, not JFK.

I believe it was Marcella who was deported.

Numerous Mobsters were verbally abused by Bobby at Senate hearings.

They had to suck it up while the proceedings went on, but they were going to get even.

Does anyone else think that the Dallas police pulled away from Oswald so they were out of harm's way when Ruby pulled the gun?

22 November 1963 was my Dad's 44th birthday. I was nine, in Grade 5 at Manotick Public School. The death of President Kennedy was the lead item on the CBC news that evening, in odd contrast with the orange-flavoured birthday cake provided -- as always -- by Granny.

The first time I ever saw a television in school was for the funeral procession, of which I remember only the black horse and the backwards boots.

I was sitting under the kitchen table while my mother made marmalade, and I couldn't work out why she was crying so much (even though I was nearly five).
Both my parents idolised JFK, and my mother was often told she looked like Jackie, which pleased her no end. Thankfully neither of them lived long enough to have their naive idealism dashed by what's now known about JFK. That said, history could have given us many far worse presidents.
