wow that is cool Kim! It is kind of eerie, I was so young when JFK was assasinated, but i remember it so clearly. We were all at recess and the freeze bell rang, then the principal came over the loudspeaker and told all of us to get home immediately and busses were lining up to provide transportation for everyone, even those near the school (within walking distance) By the time I got home my mom and dad were home from work too and we sat around the television and I saw them cry for the first time in my life.
