President John Kennedy was assassinated. I was in study hall in high school when the principal made the announcement. At the end of that class period, all students were sent home. The busses were called in early for the students who needed them. We were out of school for four days that were mostly spent watching the news on TV. The only other comparable time I can remember that impacted almost everyone in the country was the 9/11 attacks. A few older players may remember Pearl Harbor, but I’m just a little too young for that.
Do you have memories of those times that you can share?
