More than 2,000 JFK Memories Later: 11-22-63 in Your Life

Posted By JFK Memories On December 26, 2013 @ 4:21 pm In Notebook | Comments Disabled

We started this summer, asking our readers what they remember about the day in November when our president was shot [1] in Dallas.

More than 2,000 of you responded in ways that were always meaningful and often moving. We have collected some of the posts in categories:

  • Here are some that are related to one of President Kennedy’s signature achievements, the Peace Corps [2];
  • These posts [3] were written by people who, in one way or another, were eyewitnesses to events;
  • And it may be coincidence, but for these writers, a birthday [4] figures heavily in their memory of Nov. 22, 1963.


For our final post of the year, we’d like to repeat one of the simplest:

Dan Beyer writes:

November 22, 1963 is the day my wife and I were married.  We just celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. (Below: Dan and Boomiza (Za) Beyer on their wedding day, and celebrating their 50th anniversary.)
