When President Kennedy was shot.

I was six years old when President Kennedy was assassinated.  I was told what had happened, and understood pretty well.  We had a black and white television, and followed the happenings on this.  Exactly when I heard of the assassination I don’t really remember.  However I must have stayed homesick the day of the funeral, because I remember watching this on television as my mom ironed.  I remember the horse-drawn wagon, and the little boy, John Jr. saluting the casket.  Those things are etched in my mind forever.
