Today in History

JFK was assasinated 45 years ago today:

Here, he's picture on board PT-109 during WWII.

I was only 2 years old when JFK was shot, so I don't remember this at all. However, I was 5 years old when Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy were both killed and I remember the media response quite vividly. Both of these assassinations are then my earliest recollection of national tragedies.
