  •  I remember being the first to tell my mother (6+ / 0-)

    what had happened. I was in my eighth grade class when the announcement was made, and were sent home early. My mother was in the front yard. She didn't believe me at first. Both my parents were good Democrats, and loved JFK. It was the first major shock I ever experienced in my 13 year old life.

    "We can either have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few. But we can't have both." - Justice Louis Brandeis
