Today in 1963---JFK assassinated

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, is assassinated on this day in Dallas Texas.
First lady Jacqueline Kennedy and Texas Governor John Connally and his wife were also in the same car. Vice President Lyndon Johnson was three cars behind President Kennedy in the motorcade, a very rare occasion indeed for the two top executives to participate in such a public event at the same time.

The event has over the years sparked much controversy. Conspiracy theories abound and any effort to try and sort out the “evidence” is mind-boggling.

What facts are sure is this. President Jon F. Kennedy died on this day in 1963 by an assassin. He was 46 years old and the youngest President this country has had.
Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in as the 36 th President of the United States @ 2:39 Pm this day.

The United States and the World in general suffered a great loss and was changed forever.

We have persevered.

The Boat Parade--looks like Joe had to watch it from the cheap seats! He used the opportunity to again bash the fire department. Well Joe, while you were freezing you mean a*s off people with real class were watching the parade from homes on the river. Bonfire, fireworks, friends. Very enjoyable evening for people without an agenda!
