President John F. Kennedy Assasinated - November 22, 1963 - Post a Kennedy Coin

CoinHoarderCoinHoarder Posts: 601 ✭✭✭✭✭

JFK was assasinated 57 years ago today.

I remember I was in school, when they announced over the speaker in the classroom: "The president has been shot". Shortly thereafter, we were released from school early, and sent home.

Where were you that day?

I remember getting ready to go to church the Sunday after that, watching TV, and seeing Lee Harvey Oswald get shot by Jack Ruby.

Please post a Kennedy coin in memory of this great president.

    PR70DCAM - I was in 8th grade, and they announced it over the P.A. system. I remember watching on TV about a week later when Jack Ruby shot Oswald.

    CoinHoarder like you I was in school. A freshman in HS. We didn't have an intercom so these 2 Senior boys were sent to each room to relay the news. School was let out early and everyone was sent home. I too remember seeing Oswald get shot on live TV.
