Welcome to Truthful Tuesday, a prompt Melanie took over from PCGuyIV and one I am holding the fort on until he wants to take it back.
Unlike Fibbing Friday, the concept is quite simple in that I ask a question and you reply honestly and truthfully.
You can either leave your reply in the comments or write your own post and pingback to this one, then leave a link in the comments so that I can find it.
Today is a memorable day as John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was assassinated on Friday, November 22, 1963 at 12:30 p.m. CST in Dallas, Texas, while riding in a presidential motorcade through Dealey Plaza. Kennedy was in the vehicle with his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally, and Connally’s wife Nellie when he was fatally shot from the nearby Texas School Book Depository by Lee Harvey Oswald, a former US Marine. Governor Connally was seriously wounded in the attack. The motorcade rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where Kennedy was pronounced dead about 30 minutes after the shooting; Connally recovered.

My question this week is:
Can you remember what you were doing or where you were when this happened, or if you were born after 1963, can you remember your whereabouts for other major historical events that have occurred since?

I remember my Mom talking about this. She was working as a secretary in a church office and they had the radio on. It’s interesting how even if you aren’t American (or British in the case of the death of the Queen) these events impact you.
9/11 had a huge impact on all if us in the bank.

I was five years old. I remember hearing people crying or cursing that the President had been killed. I remember Bobby Kennedy’s assassination more clearly because I was ten years old and had a deep crush on Bobby. 😞
It was a shock to the world.
