Kennedy Shot

For years at coctail parties the question would come up, "where were you when you heard John F. Kennedy had been shot?"  I was in junior high school (middle school to some) and they announced it over the loudspeakers at lunch time.  I remember exactly where I was standing at John Marshall Junior High School.

Of course I was older on 9/11/01.  I was in a special training class for my job.  Of course when I went to work we had a news feed going and spent the day keeping up with developments rather than doing any training or studying.  I also remember watching it on the news in the morning and waking up my 2 boys and saying to them "history is being made today get up and watch TV"
