Six Word Saturday ~ Where Were you on That Day?

Today is the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of JFK, our 35th president. I was too little to know where I was when I learned of this shooting but grew up with a generation that was defined by the question. For me, my fateful day was September 11, 2001. I can tell you exactly where I was and what I was doing, but that’s another post. This one is about John F. Kennedy.

Where were you?

  1. I was doing my homework in the kitchen when my Dad came through and told me what had happened. I am sure I remember this correctly – BBC Television went off the air out of respect for several hours (we only had two channels in the UK then). Looking back this seems an entirely appropriate response.

  2. I was in 7th grade gym. We were learning square dancing, don’t ask me why. Our teacher came in and told us do line up then brought us back to class and told us. I remember being scared after she told us. I thought there was going to be a war. When I got home, I laid on my bed and when I heard a plane go over the house I covered my ears and I cried. I don’t know what made me think “war” but I was really scared.
