  •  They called us to our home rooms. (8+ / 0-)

    I was in school in New Jersey. 14 at the time, so I guess I was in 7th or 8th grade. It was about 2:30 in the afternoon and we got out at 3:00pm, so it was puzzling to go back to home room. I remember the Principal coming on the intercom and giving us the news. Everyone just sat stunned. There was sort of a silent panic, and I remember some people crying and some people just kind of staring.

    All weekend was spent in front of the B/W teevee watching everything. This was the era of rabbit ears (sometimes topped with aluminum foil for better reception) and there were only 3 channels. I'm sure my brother and I were the "channel changers".

    I do remember seeing LHO getting shot live on the screen. That was pretty shocking, even for my young mind. The whole weekend and through the funeral was sort of a blur.
