I was in the boys locker room at Hadley Junior High School and had just stepped out of the shower when someone told me “Kennedy’s been shot”. Where were you on November 22nd, 1963?
Many of you are too young to remember the day that changed America in a far more subtle way than those thugs who flew the jets into the two towers on 9/11. There was nearly-total disbelief following the assassination, that a lone gunman could shoot down a U.S. president on the streets of a major city.
That was followed by distrust among many over the government’s official explanation of the crime, which has two different conclusions. It was now possible … to some … that the government might be involved in the killing of our own leader, or at least involved in an elaborate cover-up. That cynicism about government is rampant today.
My personal opinion? After years of study, I have concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald – indeed – acted alone.
Our thought for today is from Marilyn vos Savant:
“To acquire knowledge, one must study; to acquire wisdom, one must observe.”
