I was barely 6 years old on that fateful day.  What I remember the most is
how quiet my Mom was.  When I asked her, "What's wrong?"  She replied, "The
President just died."  My Mom was a real fan of Jacqueline Kennedy and in
the years following that day, I can understand why.  We seem to learn so
much as we grow up, don't we?!

May, in this week, you find thankfulness in every area of your life!  I am
fortunate to be a part of this incredible group of people and I am thankful
for you!

For all you youngsters out there, I was 14 on November 22, 1963, in Jr High,
living in Madison, Wisconsin.  It was a very surreal experience and my
memories have a dream-like quality.  The school principal came to each room
and announced that Pres. Kennedy had been shot.  Then a second visit to the
classrooms to announce his death. Strangely enough, what I remember most
clearly about that day was my Civics teacher telling us that he had been a
Jr High student in 1945 when Pres. Roosevelt died, and therefore understood
what we were feeling.
