The recent articles about America of Nov. 22, 1963 and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy have been wonderful; it was such an important time in American history. However, one very universal memory has been left out from the baby boomers just getting out of school on the East Coast on that day. We typically found out about the shooting as we were leaving school, at the locker room or school bus, and we all remember going home to a mother in tears in front of an old black and white television.
I was six and didn't fully understand what was going on, but I will never forget that image of my mother. The world was shaken in so many ways that day.
Unfortunately, I was reminded so much of that image the day I brought my own children home from school early on 9/11.
