  1. JFK Memorial | The Steve Shannon Collection | November 19, 2013
  1. I was twelve years old when President Kennedy was asassinated. I was with my family at a local cafe in Glenashley when we saw the newspaper headlines. Ever since that day I have followed and read everything I can find on the President: it has been a lifelong fascination and admiration for me. And amazingly on that day prior to him being asassinated I did not even know that he existed.

  2. Isabel Bevan says:

    I live in England. I was 14 when I heard the news as I arrived home from school. It was sad and tragic and the whole world lost a great leader. We have visited Hyannis on vacation and visited the wonderful museum. Thank you for preserving his memory. We will be visiting again next year. My thoughts will be with the President’s family on 22 November.

    Watch the never before seen documentary “Where Were You: The Day JFK Died” premiering Nov 22 at 9pm/8c on NBC.
    Tom Brokaw takes viewers on an emotional journey through the life, death, and legacy of JFK. His personal emotional-connection to the story and his credibility as a journalist unite as he walks viewers of all ages through the compelling and moving stories connected to the day everything changed. With a never before seen letter, footage, interviews, and deft storytelling, Brokaw reveals a deeper sense of JFK the man; what his life, death, and legacy meant for people and how that impacts us to this day.

    I love this museum. I last visited after Ted passed away. It is intimate and you feel as though you are near a family you love. I was born after his murder and have been fortunate enough to grow up in a family where The Kennedy family was to be respected and treasured. I fell in love with the President on my own. And no matter how so called “historians” feel it is the right to endlessly examine him, his light will be ensured forever. He who gave his life to his country by being brutally murdered on one of its own streets deserves respect. Robert Dallek was quoted as saying that he will continue to dig for any new information on the President. There is not any new information that can be collaborated and Mr. Dallek and others doe not have the right to dissect a murdered President (that particular physical exam was done). President Kennedy deserves more privacy than he has been given. Besides his Presidency, It is not our right to know everyday of his life from birth to tragic end. It is repugnant that hundreds of people became authors and have made millions on one of the worst tragedies this world has ever experienced.

    I remember this like it was yesterday. my father was the voice of cape cod for over 50 years and that was when there was only one radio station at the time wocb in south yarmouth, so he was the connection to the rest of the country from the cape. I was sitting in my 6th grade classroom at the old Hyannis east elementary school on bearses way when the news came in. school was released and everybody went home. you could here a pin drop and of course no talking on the bus in those days. I came home to my mother crying watching the tv. we only live a mile from the compound and it was insane around here. my father was all over that day and I remember him coming home and being on the telephone talking to all the major networks through out the country that night. the world has never been the same since , nor have we. 50 years later and I still get emotional

      Well put, Dan. That makes me feel even better about my first three years of htnuing, and last year, too. I had four successful years in between and…

    I was just starting to work for the US Air Force at the Boston Army Base. One of our contract officers came in from being on the road and announced the President had been shot. At first we all thought it was some kind of sick joke; sadly, it was not. We were dismissed and I will never forget the ride home on the “T” with everyone dazed and crying. We were all glued to the TV for the next few days. It was the first time I ever saw my father cry!! The world hasn’t been the same since nor will it ever be.

  7. Tracy says:

    I was the same age as John Jr. when President Kennedy passed away. As I grew older, he became my hero and continues to reflect the characteristics of a dynamic and effective world leader: Progressive domestic and foreign policies, tolerant of race and religion, and focused on achieving global peace.

  8. Kathy McClellan says:

    I am a Canadian. I remember with great sadness President Kennedy on this day. He meant so much to the world and we all grieved along with our American friends. We are united in that terrible time and we all remember the significance of his legacy. God bless his soul and all of us who have felt his loss.

    Hey! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I had to
    ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours take a massive
    amount work? I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my
    diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my
    experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any
    ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
