Welcome to the November 22, 2013 Post Game Show for Mojo Friday!
I was just 9 years old when John Kennedy was shot. I was in the 4th grade, our second year in San Diego (I was a Navy brat. Many say that the second part of the descriptor still applies!). I can remember the news coming over the PA system ... and all of us being sent out to the playground while the school figured out what they were going to do ... or maybe I was out on the playground when the news came out? I must confess, my memories of 50-years ago are pretty faint. I remember feeling quite distraught and upset, although I'm sure I couldn't have explained why at the time.
And, for me, it seems that this was a major junction point in our history ... as I wonder what would have transpired if Kennedy had served out his term ... things like the Vietnam war ... things like the Civil Rights laws that Johnson pushed so hard to get passed ... and the ripple effects of both of those on the next 50 years.
I wonder. Don't you?
Anyways ... 50 years is a long time ago ... and I'm curious to know ... how old were you on this day, 50 years ago? Answer our poll and let's see!
