Both of my parents were not born at that time.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Start a thread "Where were you on November 22, 1963? It will be very short.
Sure, start up with an old man!!
I just got home from Yeshivah - a Friday afternoon, so it was around 12:30, and that's when Kennedy got shot! I remember it clearly.
Also remember Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King.
I can't seem to recall President Lincoln!
Again, Gmar Chasimah Tova to you all and looking forward IYH to a great year

Yes sir. Even my parents would barely remember where they were.


Where were you?
Under the kitchen table watching TV. The 13" B&W TV was on a little stand. Not sure why but we didn't have school that day. Maybe parent/teachers conference day or something.

Only reason I knew the significance of that date right away is that when my son was born everyone old enough to remember it said, "Oh, his birthday is on the day JFK was shot."

So what you're saying is that one day when we're all old and grey, we'll be telling the youngsters "I remember Sep. 11th like yesterday" and they'll be looking up their <Google inheritor> to find out what that is? :o

My initial reaction is the 9/11 is different from 11/22, but that's probably just because I remember the former and not the latter. People who remember JFK describe that day similarly - everyone remembers where they were, etc. Only difference I can think of is that 9/11 has always been known and remembered by its date. Everyone knows that JFK was assassinated, but people who weren't alive don't remember the date.

I think 9/11 will always be in the American psyche as the day was always so integral to the reporting (9/11 attack) versus JFK where it was the JFK assassination and not the 11/22 assassination.

Plus 9/11 changed this nation a whole lot more than JFK's assassination.  Things like the TSA, Snowden, and tons of other stuff would never come into being without 9/11.

Though it is crazy talking to my younger brother who wasn't even alive on 9/11.  Hard to comprehend not living through the horror of that day.
