Those of you who are old enough, do you remember what you were doing the day President Kennedy was shot and killed? This question was asked on TV. Yes, I remember and so does my daughter, Pam! I was at home with my two little children, Pammy and Teddy. I heard the news on TV. I was in shock. I went right to the phone, called Jerry at Dow Chemical Co and relayed to him what had just been reported. The phone lines were shut down in Dow right after I called! I was in shock all day and all night and even for several days. I loved President Kennedy.
Pam told me, last evening as we talked about this, that she also remembers the day! She was a very little girl! Here’s what she remembers: I was wearing a blue dress and was folding clothes when an announcement came over the TV. I called her daddy and then she remembers me sitting on the sofa, crying. She didn’t know why I was crying, just that I was crying. It seemed strange to her for me to cry!
Do you remember?
