Ah yes

We watched some of the 1960 debates on TV, toured a number of DC sites in the last days of the Eisenhower administration, and remember well viewing the JFK Inaugural Address, the Cuba missile crisis, etc. It was a horrible day when the Reverend Mother came into class to report the awful news of this day. As we’ve noted elsewhere, we’ve actually met a head of government who was murdered, but that was long after 1963. Seeing Jack Ruby that Sunday was one of the strangest things ever.

    I was a little kid back in ’63. Had just turned 7. Was in the second grade. But I remember seeing Jack Ruby shot on live TV.
