I remember. I was sitting on the floor watching a cartoon, I believe it was the Flintstones, when the broadcast was interrupted and the scene came onto the TV. It was my first exposure to violence and to politics.

I didn't understand what was happening, of course, but now, over 50 years later, I've grasped the gravity of the situation.
Recently I asked my mom how she and Daddy had responded or reacted to it.....
I had never thought of it before.

I had turned 5 years old 5 days earlier.

I remember where I was, too. I also remember standing in person, for the longest time, staring at the eternal flame.

I'm also just going to present one photograph, imo the most important photograph taken that day...



Edit: Oh yah, the video. Most revealing tidbits are towards the end, for those really interested beyond a 'quick look'.

Kennedy proposed "landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth" by the end of the 1960s, in an address to Congress on May 25, 1961.

I was 5 when I heard that on the news, at that age you can still dream.

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World played November 7, 1963 just prior to the Kennedy assassination.

That Beechcraft D-18 that Tallmantz Aviation flew in the movie should be in a museum.
