    Whenever we used to think of JFK, we would think things like "great leader," "young," and "assassinated." Being teenagers, we have an interest in stories like his, so we decided to do our project on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. As we did research we found out a lot about what had happen that dark day in November and we got a pretty good grasp on it. The facts were simple, but we didn't really understand just how much it affected the American people until we interviewed Michael and Lisa. We found that people were devastated when he was shot and it really put a down feeling on the country. When people found out that were many tears, a lot of anger and sadness. Also, people didn't really believe it until they saw that footage that proved that he was really gone.
    Just because this happened over 40 years ago, we also learned that it had a long term affect on Americans. This horrible event caused youth to "grow up." It also made young kids like Lisa realize that there isn't a solution to every problem, and that some people are filled with hate when other are filled with love. The world is a crazy place and the assassination of JFK made people realize that even in the United States, terrible tragedies can happen.

    Immediately after John F. Kennedy was shot, he was brought to Parkland Memorial Hospital where he was given every treatment the doctors could think of. One of the doctors said that when he saw JFK when he was first brought in, he knew there was nothing he could do. John F. Kennedy was announced dead at 1 P.M. central time. Two priests were brought to the hospital to perform last rites. At 1:36 P.M., the public was told about JFK. With a heavy heart and red-rimmed eyes, Mr. Kilduff said, "President John F Kennedy died at approximately 1 o'clock Central standard time today here in Dallas. He died of a gunshot wound in the brain. I have no other details regarding the assassination of the President." At around 2 P.M., he was brought out in a bronze casket with Jacqueline right at the side with her hand lightly pressed on the top. She was said to be looking steadily down.
    99 minutes after the President was declared dead, Lyndon B Johnson was sworn in as the President of the United States. He took The Oath of Office inside the Presidential Jet on Love Field.
    Ambers-Amber's-
    -President Kennedy was murdered at the height of the Cold War, just a year after the Cuban Missile Crisis brought the world to the brink of nuclear disaster
    -The civil rights movement gathered momentum in the early 1960s and clashed with resistance, particularly in the South
    ...
    - He murdered a police officer while eluding capture and had months earlier taken a shot at General Walker
    -Medical evidence shows that all shots came from above and behind the motorcade
    Elected in 1960, President John F. Kennedy was a new type of leader. He was young, handsome, enthusiastic about what he was doing, and all of these things really excited Americans. In his first year in office, he didn’t do much, but as the next year came, he started to do more. People were really starting to love our new President, but like all political leaders, he had some that hated him.
    A little after 11:30, Air Force 1 landed in Dallas, Texas. John F Kennedy, accompanied by his wife Jacqueline, was to address an assembly in Trade Market. Being a new type of President, he believed in close contact with the American people, so he, his wife, and Mr. and Mrs. Connally were going to take a motorcade to their destination. The drive had gone well, and JFK’s supporters were everywhere, but then they got to Dealey Plaza. Dealey Plaza was a place in the city where many of the main streets connected, and this was where their last turn was going to be until they got to a more secure place. The car slowed down to make the turn and suddenly, several shots took the spotlight. People looked over to our great president to see him take an impact and then slump down onto his wife. Immediately after this, Governor Connally collapsed into his wife’s arms in pain.
    There are many opinions as to how many shots there were. Some people say there were 3, others say 4. Because Dealey Plaza was so packed, there were several people who believed that they saw the shooter. Some witnesses said that the shots were from an overpass in front of the limo. Some people believe it came from a grassy knoll in front and to the right of the limo. Two people even said that they saw a man with a rifle that had a telescope. The most interesting experience came from Harold Norman. He was a worker on the 5th floor of a School Book Depository. Norman said that right after the President was shot, he heard what sounded like shell casings dropping on the floor. When the second shot rang out, he saw a fine white powder on his fellow employee’s head which was later identified as plaster from the ceiling. Police went to the 6th floor and found 3 shell casings and sure enough, the rifle with telescopic sights. The killer was later identified as Lee H Oswald.
    Immediately after John F. Kennedy was shot, he was brought to Parkland Memorial Hospital where he was given every treatment the doctors could think of. One of the doctors said that when he saw JFK when he was first brought in, he knew there was nothing he could do. John F. Kennedy was announced dead at 1 P.M. central time.

    Thinking back on this day, over 40 years later, how do you think that this has affected you?
    Dad: I think we as individuals and the nation as a whole lost our innocence that week. We were forced to recognize evil in the hearts of men. We were forced to recognize the vulnerability of our leaders. We were forced to realize that even our King Arthur was mortal. I think our youthful energy and idealism prevented disillusionment. It took the assassination of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King followed by the escalation of the war in Viet Nam for many of us to become cynical about politics, about the power and might of the US, about the double-speak of our leaders and later of the Press itself.
    ...
    WITH LISA
    What were your parents doing in 1963? What was your status?
    Mom: My mother was a housewife, my father was working for an advertising agency in Chicago. I was 5 years old, so in SK. We lived in a nice suburb of Chicago close to both sets of grandparents.
    What was it like in 1963? Was it a happy atmosphere, scared, sad, etc?
    Mom: The family atmosphere was happy, but in terms of the nation, the Viet Nam war was happening, there were protests everywhere, racism was unfortunately rampant.
    ...
    like him?
    Mom: I used to hear my parents talking about him and they thought he was an excellent President. A strong decision maker, did what he said he would do. And of course the women in my family thought Jackie Kennedy was an icon of class and style.
    ...
    was shot?
    Mom: There was a television show called the Mickey Mouse club. I was planted firmly on the floor watching with my grandfather. My mother was upstairs putting away laundry. All of the sudden I heard “We interrupt this program to bring you a special news bulletin. President Kennedy has been shot and seriously wounded.” My grandfather just stood up and ran to the stairs to tell my mother. I was crying and asking what happened. He was in so much shock he couldn’t answer me.
    What do you remember when you found out that the President of our nation had been assassinated? What was your initial reaction? What did you do? Do you remember where you were? When did you find out?
    Mom: See above. Also I remember not being able to fully process what was happening. I knew it was something terrible. It was incredibly scary.
    What were other people’s reactions? What was the atmosphere like after the news had been released?
    ...
    after 9/11.
    Were you hopeful that he might still live or did you realize that a great leader of our nation was gone?
    Mom: There was maybe an hour (remember this is in “kid time”) where everyone hoped he would be ok, but they announced that he was gone very quickly. Then they started showing film (not video!) of the shooting and of him lying on the ground afterwards. This was scary and sad. But it also made you realize that he really was gone.
    Did you ever have any scared thoughts about what might happen to you and everyone else in your country?
    Mom: Not back then, no. I felt that we were very safe in the United States. Wars and terrorism happened in other countries. I will say that even though I felt safe I used to worry a lot about the soldiers in Viet Nam. Even then the media had stories about the bad things happening.
    ...
    affected you?
    Mom:

    Mom:
    It has
    ...
    tragedy occurs.
    To this day every time a news bulletin comes on I am literally almost panicking until I know what has happened. I don’t take our safety and freedom for granted.
