November 22, 1963; I was in the fifth grade. I had a seat by the window. I could see out the door and into the hallway when the principal came and asked the teacher to step out of the room. I saw her head drop to her chest and she nodded to the principal. She turned back into the room, looking at the front chalkboard. She picked up the eraser and moved in back and forth, up and down. Then she turned and said, "Boys and girls, I have some sad news..." It is clear in my mind now as it was then. Do you remember where you were when John F Kennedy died?
