I wasn’t here on this earth when it happened 50 years ago today when a sniper shot and killed President John F. Kennedy in Dallas. I’ve heard and read about what happened as I grew up just outside of Washington, DC. My parents were big fans of the president. In fact, my father went to his inauguration in January 1961 and took pictures. It was a huge crowd on that day.
Sadly, President Kennedy’s life was cut short, thanks to a madman with a gun. It saddened my parents.
I went to Emerson College during the 1980s in Boston and stayed there after I graduated. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about him and his family. Too bad I wasn’t around when he was alive.
We’ll always remember him.
