I was five years old and watching "Jungle Jim with Johnny Weismueller" when there was a news bulletin. I remember being initially mad when they interrupted. Then...
My mother fell to the floor in the kitchen and started wailing like at a Greek wake. I learned a word. Assassination.

Later, I saw a boy who lost his dad. The funeral was also his birthday.

I was raised Catholic, so at an early age I knew the president's name. I also knew they went to my school to vote for Bobby.
My family had very strong opinions on what the assassination was about.
