For the next four days, every one was glued to the wall-to-wall TV coverage on all three channels: ABC, CBS, and NBC. All regular programing was preempted. My mother says I sat in my kid-size rocking chair in front of our black and white TV set taking it all in. She saved this drawing I did of the President’s funeral procession.
The only earlier memory I have is of my sister being born and coming home from the hospital the year before in November 1962. This picture of me pushing my year old sister in a stroller was taken a few weeks before the Kennedy assassination.
I was born in January 1958. I have not met anyone younger then me that remembers the vivid details of this national tragedy.
