I was six in 1963, and remember 11/22 like it was yesterday. No one in the streets...all watching TV and grieving. The whole country just shut down for four days. America was never the same after that. It was the beginning of the turbulent 60's that shaped music, art, dress, culture, etc. I was so imacted, even at such a young age, that I became almost obsessed with the events surrounding 11/22. I would bet I was the only seven year old that read Death of a President and the Warren report, once it was made public. JFK was truly one of the last of our great leaders.

Probably the last truly democratic leader the west has known.

He was truly a threat and barrier to the men who lead the US today.

Major history: George Bush snr was the director of the C I A when JFK was assassinated.

To high school students in the early 60's JFK was our hero. We put his portrait up on our walls and so many of us shared a deep respect and admiration for him. He gave us hope that the world could be a better place. When he died, so many of our dreams and hopes died with him. Waynejr is correct, nothing has been the same since.

I was 14 when John Kennedy was shot in Dallas. After his death I believe we were no more like we had been before.Things have not been the same since his death.Innocense lost I believe. The best President I ever served under was Regan.He sent us into some hot spots around the world but if we were ever fired on,he had already given us the ok to defend ourselves.I also do not believe what the Warren Commission came up with eiter. Guess we will never know...

My mother was seven months pregnant with me when JFK was killed. She thought it would turn out to be the first act of World War III.
