Just watched JFK the other day. It was all before my time so it is hard to remember. Watched the new X men last night with wife and they mentioned it also but from a fictional perspective.

No matter the man, it is a shame and disgrace when the leader of a country in the free world is assassinated by one of its people..

I dont care for Obama, but would still put my life on the line for the office.

I'm not so sure many folk here in Blighty would be all that concerned if our Prime Minister were to meet an unhappy demise but if any one were to harm our Queen, well now that's a different story entirely. I'm NOT a Royalist by any stretch of the imagination but there is still something ancient within me which tells me to protect Her Majesty and protect her I would with my very life. If I even hear someone utter a threat to our Queen I punch them squarely in the face, there may be aspects of Leadership we dislike but once 'the people' lose respect for the Leader of their Country, well, let's face it, it wont end well will it. We have Government here so our Queen isn't strictly speaking our Leader but I still consider the Queen to be our Sovereign Leader and will not stand for bad things being said about her, if someone hurt her and I got my hands on that person it would NOT end well for that person.

I was busy trying not to forget the Alamo, the War of 1812, The Hundred Years War, the
Three Hundred And Thirty-Five Year War...  

...there needs to be an app, Monbla.   It'll have every significant event in history on timer-alarm, the moment its anniversary hits.   Razz

We shall never forget!  

Cool

PS... Playin' around, JFK was a cool dude.   My father calls it "...the day the last reasonable Democrat died...."...totally serious.   He hates politics, especially these days.

Quick now, no cheating--when was Lincoln assassinated? I don't remember any caterwauling on the anniversary of that date either. Tsk, tsk! Wink

Nope, too busy with the atrocities of today.  

Those of us who were young adults at the time, remember it all too well......all too well.

I remember most vividly but, don't see a good reason to bring it up every year.
Sorta like someone reminding you of the deaths in your family every year. Crying or Very sad

Wow, I can't believe there was zero on this in our paper,MSN news page, etc. I completely missed it. That would have been unthinkable 20 years ago (heck maybe even 10?). I remember last year when Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day barely had a few lines in page 3-4 of our paper, that also made me sad.

I guess we're seeing how stuff begins to fade from the public consciousness. Smartphone people probably remember 9/11 like the landline/snail-mail folk remember 11/22 or 7/12. In 2050 they'll laugh that we actually drove cars and depended on fossil fuels. George Bush will just be a picture and sidebar on the US History app.

I remembered!! Sad Still remember our HS principal coming over the intercom and telling us the awful news. We were released early, heading home to watch the TV coverage (Walter Cronkite on CBS or Chet & David on NBC) in black and white!!! TV was on dang near 24/7. The funeral procession, John Jr's salute, the cortege, the music, the great black horse with the reversed boots; yeah, I remembered Sad Sad Awful time FTRPLT

I shall never forget that date. I was in History Class Junior year in High School. The whole weekend was spent watching every moment of the tragedy unfold and funeral procession. And to this day I still believe that it was a conspiracy.

Damn, beat me to it. I guess the role of fact checker is already taken. Though I should probably expect as much of a professor of history. Smile

Every clown on this board the Internets thinks of themselves as a fact-checker. Welcome to 2014. Laughing We do sometimes have contests of cantankerousness and grouch-fests for no reason, which makes us more real. Some of us are even nice. I love you

Hehe, I guess this is why we up and left the monarchy in the first place. We figured if 'the people' lose respect for the leader of their country, well there's probably a good reason and it might just be time to fix the problem. Also, it's highly encouraged to voice our opinions when the government has gone sour. Little thing called freedom of speech. Wink
