Tribute to JFK

A few years ago I managed to find a copy of this issue of SATURDAY EVENING POST and thought today might be a good day to bring it out. It's been 47 years.

A cliche but time marches on doesn't it?

I remember this, although it has been many many years since I've looked at it.

The date rang a bell for me this morning, and I had to check online to be sure. I was a senior in college in 1963, and for my generation, I think, it was a watershed event - like 9/11 has become today.

Those brief years of Camelot were an innocent age by comparison with our own, yet they were not without their crises - Cuba, Little Rock, and all the turbulence that waited in the wings that came to be known as "the Sixties."

I rember leaving work early and stopping at a church on my way home. What a traumatic weekend that was.

I'm too young to have lived the death of JFK. And, from what i now thanks to my parents, the news about that.. well, let's say this way: In those years, we had a dictatorship in Spain, the people was worried with another things. The common people, i mean. The ones in places of command... i suppose they worried, but not for the sae reasons what worried you all in the USA.

In 1963, I was in Miami at the airport when Kennedy took off for Dallas. I couldn't believe what happened the next day. A sad day for America.

senseless is right, and I think he would have been the best thing that had happened to this country - best president - since or possibly including FDR.
