I was 2 years old, the youngest of 3. My mother told me that she remembers her friend came over, we all stayed inside the house (5 kids in all), and watched the B&W TV. She said they were very sad.

I was working at the Allen Organ Company as a coupler wirer when we heard the announcement over the radio. It was like a shock wave that ran through the room.

I was in history class. They announced it over the loud speakers. The teacher told us to just sit quietly for the rest of the class period then they sent us home. My dad was working on the car and hadn't heard. When I told him, his reaction was so fierce the significance of what had happened finally hit me and I cried. Dad didn't turn off the television for two days even during supper, and mom, who didn't like television, didn't complain about it being on. That was a big thing in our house.

I was in foods class, back in the storeroom getting ingredients. The next class the teacher said "I know that you have all heard the news about the president, but that is done. Time to get to work." That man was just so cruel and heartless all the time.

I was in 5th grade and in Mr. Heath's class. He was absent that day and we had a sub. We were in the middle of studying history when another teacher rolled a TV in and told us to tune in. I remember the sub saying that the history being made that day as important as what we were studying in the books. At home, later in the day, we stayed around the TV set all evening.

I was in elementary school and I lived in the Phillippines. I remember it was Sunday and we were all in the auditorium, as always before breaking up into our individual Sunday school classes, and the announcement was made. Everybody started crying, and I just went out and sat on a swing, trying to understand how something like that could happen to such a good man.

Be blessed,

9th grade on a Friday - a very distressed teacher came running into the class, whispered to our teacher and they both left, but returned shortly afterwards saying that the President of the US had been assassinated and that school was closing early for the day. Being the oldest, I collected my three younger sisters and we all went home, turned on the TV, watched it continuously until after the funeral and only took a break when we slept. And it was while I was sleeping that my father woke me up, telling me he had just watched live on TV Lee Harvey Oswald being shot and killed.

Even though this was a horrific American event, those of us in Canada felt your pain and were affected very much so. A day marked indelibly in my mind - can't believe it was 50 years ago - I remember it like it was yesterday!!!
