"Where Were You 50 Years Ago?"
 
   I was in 4th grade and remember going home for lunch and hearing the president had been shot. Before school was dismissed for the day at 3:15 my teacher told us that the president had died. My entire family was watching TV and saw Oswald get shot by Jack Ruby. What a very sad time. I know I'm one of the old timers on this site, so probably most of you weren't even born then.

I was in class in seventh grade.

Yes it really was an added shock when Ruby shot Oswald. At that point you couldn't even guess what would happen next.

I was yet a twinkle in my daddy's and mammy's eyes.

Be well,

   Even though many of us were not born or old enough to be aware of what was going on when Kennedy was shot, we did learn of it later and this does not make you the old one Deb.

On the subject of 50 years ago---the invention or rather the use of the ZIP code and Mr. Zip.

I was in the band room. The phone rang and the band director answered. It was his wife with the news. Shortly after, everyone assembled in the gym where a radio was tuned to the news.
