The day that altered history

(image courtesy of Google)

I don't remember a lot about November 22nd 1963 but I do remember one thing that will forever stand out in my mind.

We were living on a Navy base in southern California and we were let out of school early that day, when I got home my mother was sitting in our tiny Navy housing living room crying in front of the RCA black & white TV. Little did I know at such a young age how history had been forever altered and the sadness of that day would change the sweet innocence we knew...

Do you have a significant memory of that day in history? If so, I'd love for you to share as your day is as much a part of history as that moment in Dallas, Texas 1963...


  1. Your flag photo is very haunting. I remember that dark day well, and then when his brother Robert Kennedy and then Rev. Martin Luther King were killed too, it hit me like a triple whammy. I very much admired those 3 men.

  2. Terra, I couldn't agree with you more and remember each day like it was yesterday...
    Thank you for stopping by my friend!

  3. I so remember that day- so sad - it forever altered our innocence- and I believe it had a lot to do with the uprisings of the 60's. We were people with causes and I believe it started the day JFK died...and then to lose Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy just made it all the worse- xo Diana

  4. I agree Diana, I just watched a program about that very thought; America changed after November 22nd and even though I was only 6 years old the memory of that day will live with me forever...

  5. I was in college(telling my age). I will never forget that day and the few sad days that followed.

  6. Terry, just thinking about you today...hope you are doing well! XO

    1. As you know Susan, its taken me a bit to get back into La Bella Vie. So happy you stopped by my friend! Will be swinging by later on to see you!


A penny for your thoughts...
