Good Bye Avalon

Forty-seven years ago today I was in biology class when the announcement came over the loudspeaker from a stunned and almost speechless principal... American president John F. Kennedy was assassinated while riding in his motorcade in downtown Dallas, Texas.

He was the youngest man elected U.S. president and was killed by gunshots on November 22, 1963 as he rode in an open-top car.  He was 46 years old.

I always get a lump in my throat when I think about that day and the succeeding days watching the funeral.
