November 22, 1963

I remember that I was in first grade and our teacher was crying. We really didn't understand what was going on, only that the president had been shot. I think that most of us thought that it was like a TV show, where they just patch it up and it's OK.

Lots of theory's and plenty of footage exists, but I thought this was a good synopsis. From National geographic:
On Nov. 22, 1963, hundreds of hours of TV news, radio reports, and home movies captured history as it was chaotically unfolding.

  2. So many theories about this, it's like picking straws.

  3. the news media didnt deem this important enough to send any crews -- they were all at the trade mart - hence there are only home movies of the event

  4. I was also in first grade and remember it was the first time we were allowed to watch TV in school. I also remember everyone being very sad.
