50 Years Ago Today

For people of a certain age, the mere mention of certain words still trigger memories of a defining event in their lives.

Dealey Plaza…the grassy knoll…Parkland Memorial Hospital…the Texas School Book Depository.

Half a century later, those words from Dallas still resonate, forever connected with the day we realized that the world was a dangerous and unpredictable place, where change came quickly and without warning. Where the world was one way, and then different one moment later.

Most remember where they were when they heard the shocking news; they remember their initial thoughts, feelings and words.

And they remember a young President who was gone far too soon, and far too violently.

One brief moment on a sunny day in Dallas, things changed for all of us, never to return to the way they were.


Today’s Fact Cetera

President Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby all died at Parkland Memorial Hospital.
