57 years ago…

It was just a small article in today’s local paper reminding us that 57 years ago on this date in history that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.

It is estimated that only 1 in 5 American still living were have memory of the events. I remember vividly where I was when the news arrived that the President had died of his wounds.

May he and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in God’s peace.

  1. I remember walking home from school and crying. My mother and I watched the news showing President Kennedy being shot, and then Oswald being shot. A terrible time for our country. Time seems to be going by so fast. Fortunately, Father George, as you have said in the past, as long as the stories are told, people will remember.
