I remember, I was in the third grade and remember hearing of it on the school bus coming home.

I recall as I was a junior in high school at the time.

8th grade, English class. I can see the teacher in my mind but can't remember her name.
Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.
5 years old. I remember getting up and asking why everyone was huddled around the (black and white) t.v. They told me the President had been shot.
ACCU-STRUT FOR MINI-14
I remember. Teachers were crying and classes were dismissed early. I watched the funeral on TV.
Regardless of what you may think of the Kennedys, our country profoundly changed that day.

I was 4 years old. It’s my earliest memory.
I saw it on tv, walked into the kitchen and told my Mom “the president’s dead”. She scolded me and said “that’s not funny”. I told her it’s on the tv in the living room.

My class was sent home early from elementary school. Walked home and found mom was crying her eyes out
watching the news on TV.
One of my earliest memory as well. I was 6 years old at the time.
America was changed for the worst since that day.This message has been edited. Last edited by: m58,

So was I. They interrupted the English class I was in, told us the news and sent us home.
It was the first and only early release I ever had. These days they have them every other week around here.

I was five yrs old. I came home from kindergarten and found my mother crying as she watched the news coverage. (And, she was a Republican)
I found what you said riveting.
My family was living in The Hague at the time. My diplomat dad got a phone call from the embassy. It was late in the evening there after the TV had signed off for the night. We turned on the BBC to listen to the news. I well remember the shock and dismay. This kind of thing simply didn't happen in the good old USA.
I was working at a VW Dealership that day when word was broadcast on radio about the JFK assassination.
All work stopped as people wandered off in all directions. I saw Business men weep.
I drove home, alone.

That said I learned about his assassination before first grade and always regarded it as one of America’s blackest days. Nothing in the 48 years that has passed has changed my opinion on that sad subject.
It was a Friday. I was home sick from school in third grade, and mom was watching the Mike Douglas show when they interrupted about noon to announce that President Kennedy had been shot. About an hour later his death was reported.This message has been edited. Last edited by: NOCkid,
I also was in grade school, teachers were crying and we were sent home early. Our country went into a deep downward spiral after that. We have been in a funk for decades, and really just started going up when Trump was in office.
I was a freshman at University of Tennessee. I still picture the short sidewalk steps from the Chemistry building up to the back of Ayres Hall. I was on the steps when I heard another student telling about JFK being shot.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Anush,

I've always found it touching watching Walter Cronkite struggle to keep it together while announcing Kennedy's death as official.

I was a junior at Jesuit High School, Beaverton OR, in a US History class. We heard it over the intercom speaker in the classroom.
The trouble with trouble is; it always starts out as fun.
I was not quite yet 3, so no…don’t remember this tragic, historical event.

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
