where were you, pictures

do you remember where you were on that day
i know where i was
i was in my american history class in the 9th grade
my american history teacher announced to us that
president kennedy was shot and had died
i can still remember how shocked we all were
and i remember watching my teacher cry as
she told us

this event seemed to start a bad start to the sixties
as assassinations seemed to be societys answer to
ridding society of politicians and prominent people
john f kennedy
robert kennedy
martin luther king
george wallace

it was a sad decade the sixties
i can only imagine what it would be like if we had had all
the tv coverage and internet coverage we have today
we would all have been terrorized by the sensationalism
it was a tragic time period
that i hope we can learn from

i watched news coverage last night and plan to watch it today and
tonight on the kennedy assassination
we do have a lot to learn from it

dallas and texas was a toxic environment with a lot of money
poured in to the antikennedy campaign by a rich millionaire
with a lot of antikennedy sentiment in dallas
seems familiar doesnt it

now in 2013 no president would enter that arena and expose themselves
to the risk of assassination
it just takes one crazy person

this toxic environment that was present then seems to be present nowadays
nothing good will ever come from this

here is a link to the dallas news website which has devoted today
to the kennedy assassination

please go to it if you want to know more about that day and that time
there are a lot of articles pictures and videos

even buy a dallas morning news today

now for a more  pleasant topic
here are the pictures of the monarchs at my wife shes school
taken by a student
