"The Assassination of President Kennedy" will explore the key conclusions of the controversial Warren Commission, as well as the shocking impact of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, ahead of the 50th anniversary on November 22.
I was drawn into the whole assassination thing in high school when assigned a term paper on the Magic Bullet. 40+ years later I'm still learning more. I find it impossible to believe Oswald -- and only Oswald -- pulled this off, and Ruby killed him because he was upset. Back then there was a long list of who wanted Kennedy dead: Castro, CIA. Russians, Mafia, Lyndon Johnson and even the Military/Industrial complex. Depending on which book(s) you read, cases can be made for all angles. Was there a cover-up? C'mon, there are just too many inconsistencies with the evidence, or lack thereof, to say Oswald did it. Alone.
Several days later, we drove to Arlington, VA to spend Thanksgiving with my maternal grandparents, who lived in Annandale, VA. A classmate of mine went to Martinique with his family for the holiday. In Martinique, people asked his parents, "Will there be a coup in America?"
A month later, we went back to Arlington for Christmas. My dad took my brothers and me to Arlington Cemetery. We didn't attempt to join the line to see the eternal flame at the grave, because the line was so long and six people across. I didn't actually see Kennedy's grave up close until around 1997. On that day in '63, we stood just up the hill, on the lawn of Arlington, and looked back down the slope toward the grave.

I was in 4th grade, Verona,Ms, at recess, playing on the maypole. Boy came up and said pres was dead and laughed. School closed, rode the bus home. Mom was crying at home. It was an awful feeling. We were so sad
Show so far looks to be done very well. Sadly, we'll never know the truth. And even if someone came out and told the truth, who would believe it after all this time, and all the various conspiracies out there?
I was sitting in my 6th grade classroom when the Principal came in and announced that President Kennedy had been shot and killed in Dallas, Tx. School was dismissed early that day. I, along with the rest of the country, was in shock as I remained glued to our black and white TV for the next several days.
