The President and the First Lady with Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly at the White House

CAMELOT REMEMBERED--I was an 18 year old freshman lying on the sofa of my parents home on Bancroft Street in San Diego, CA.  It was Friday morning, November 22, 1963 and I was studying for an SDSU history exam later in the afternoon, when my mom came in from the kitchen in tears.   She had been listening to the radio.  “They shot the President.”  I’ll always remember her words, especially “they.”

Where were you at the moment you first heard?
