Seniors where were you on this day 56 years ago?

I was in middle school, math class, when our principal announced that JFK had been shot.

    Same here. The whole school went quiet and then the crying started. We were all sent home. As kids we knew he was young and had lots of energy to get things done. We loved him and his family and it was such a loss to all of us.

    I was in school also.  We got sent home early.  I think the teacher led us in a prayer before we went home.

    I was working in my auto repair shop. I was married and just had a kid. The Snap-On salesman was there, at the time we heard it on the radio.

    I was 5 1/2, don't really remember.  I do remember being annoyed when my cartoons were interrupted by the funeral coverage.

    Seniors? Who am I supposed to be senior to? I have no objection to being called an old fart but I refuse to answer to the condescending twee euphemism "senior citizen".  I was 15 and at home and about to watch the first episode of Doctor Who when the news came on the TV.

    I was flying off the coast of San Diego finishing up a training mission in the early morning and heading back to NAS North Island when I tuned into KSDO and heard the news.
