Six years old, sitting in Mrs. Gray's first grade class.

She came into the room sobbing, "They've killed the President."

Class dismissed.

Marine Corp boot camp, Parris Island. DI walked in, we all snapped to attention. He said " all those from Texas take one step forward" about 3 guys did that. He then said " someone from your f@#ken state just shot and killed the President" he then turned and walked out leaving the whole platoon standing at attention with those three guys still standing there. Nobody moved, like we were all in shock.
About 5 minutes later the DI came back in pushing a TV, plugged it in and left again.
About an hour later he came back again and told us to pack our seabags , you've been placed on 24 hour Stand By and could be shipped out if required.
Went to bed that night knowing very little, woke the next day, unpacked, and things returned normal, except we were allowed to keep the TV for a few days.

3rd grade class. Teacher's name was Tot Canon. My classmate and friend, Greg Vaughn's mother burst into our class crying, saying they've killed our President. It was automatic that every 3rd grader in that class began crying too...

Second grade, out to recess. I was sitting with a girl I had a crush on when the announcement was made on the PA. We couldn't understand what was being said but someone who heard it clearly told us.

That girl ended up marrying my sister's ex-husband many years later, and we're friends to this day.

The one in Nashville Tennessee? Bailey Bombers, 1952-59. I was a 1st. year engineering student at UT Martin when JFK assumed room temperature. Good beginning, but LBJ and Nixon should have joined him.
