I was only three years old, almost four yet I can still remember watching the funeral procession on a Black and White television at my Grandmothers house.
I remember asking her why the boots were in the stirrups backwards and watching the caisson go down the street.
This from a guy who can barely remember what he ate for breakfast anymore.
To say John F. Kennedy's assassination fucked this country up is an understatement of massive proportions, the after effects are still tangible 51 years later even though almost that entire generation is gone.
