Do you recall what you were doing on November 22, 1963? I will always remember working in an office, when the typewriters all stopped and I started hearing women crying!!! Then one came bursting into our office and blurted "The president's been shot!!!" My wife and I remember that we both wept, off and on, for three days back then.

Other momentous events over the years have been upsetting, too, of course. The day the Twin Towers were hit, for example, we were watching a morning news show, and they were talking abut how awful it was that the first building was hit, when, over their shoulders, out their window, we could see another plane roar into the other building -- in real time! Then we all knew the first was no accident!

Things you never forget.
