47 years

It hit me today that it was 47 years since the shooting of JFK. Yet I didn't see anything in the media about it.

I was sitting in 9th grade social studies when it came over the loud speaker. I remember the teacher started to cry.

I was in 10th grade psychology class. I don't remember anything about that day prior to the knock on the classroom door and the teacher coming back to tell the class. I Remember everything about the day after that moment.
