Toddling around my parents' living room at 14 months.

I have a vague memory of my mother shedding tears.

I was 6 years old and all I remember was that there were no cartoons on TV because they were preempted by the telecast of the funeral.

My parents not only were a couple years from meeting, they didn't even live on the same continent.
Dad was about 6 mo out of HS, probably driving a coke truck.
Mom was in her Senior year of HS,@ a Boarding School in extreme northern India. (her parents were Missionaries) she didn't find out until the next day(sat) when they went in to town for supplies.

I was reading a book with a girl in my second grade class (Mary Jane) when our teacher (Mrs. Hessel) announced that the president had been shot...we were sent home. Funny thing...I hadn't seen Mary Jane for over 30 years and had a chance to see her at an "all class" reunion last year. We talked about the event...she remembers it too...reading the book with me...the announcement...being sent home. Neither of us remember anything else about the second grade.

I can't remember where I was when JFK was shot. I was probably in school. I remember the funeral and all of that. I still remember the casket on a wagon (they have a special name for that wagon but I can't remember) being pulled by horses in Washington DC.

But I do remember seeing him riding down the street in an open convertible car about a year or so before he was shot. He waved at the crowd and a older man standing next to me said 'Hi boss,' or something like that.

President Kennedy had a strange powerful effect on people.
