Where Were You When Kennedy Was Shot?

I had the pleasure of attending “Where Were You When Kennedy was Shot?” at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The event was moderated by Gil Klein, with speakers Bob Schieffer, Jim Lehrer, Marianne Means, and Sid Davis. Schieffer, Lehrer, Means, and Davis were all in Dallas when President Kennedy was assassinated. Kennedy’s assassination changed the landscape of the American way of life, and how Americans would be able to interact with their political leaders. Meeting Schieffer especially was a pleasure, as he is a legend in his business. Getting a picture with him was even better. It is good to know that people still care about events that transpired 50 years ago, and are more than willing to talk about their experiences. History cannot die. Without it, the mistakes of the past will be repeated.
