Terri Reed here. This month marked the 50th's Anniversary of the 35th presidents assassination. I wasn't born yet when he died, but I remember asking my mother once where she was when she heard the news. She was a few months pregnant with me. She was in the living room of the house she and my dad shared in South Lake Tahoe. She was watching the president's motorcade on television as she was ironing clothes. Her words formed an image in my mind that has never left.
The events of the day changed our nation in so many ways. One way that I found fascinating was how the secret service changed.
If you were old enough do you remember where you were when you heard the news? Do you know where your parents or grandparents were when they heard the news?
