I was three years old when that happened, so don’t remember the assassination that day, but I do remember seeing the funeral procession on TV and remember the horse drawn caissons carrying the coffin. I also remember it would be a year earlier going to town with my mother and seeing a long military convoy of jeeps and deuce and half trucks going through town on U.S Highway 70 in Lebanon Tennessee. This had to be when the Cuban Missile Crisis was happening.

I was was in third grade.  Didn't know enough about what was going on in the world to get the full impact of it, but remember it was a big deal.

I remember that not long after that, it seemed like every coffee table had a copy of "The Torch is Passed" on it.
