Moments Before Disaster

Moments Before Disaster, originally uploaded by macprohawaii.

I was only 6 years old when this happened. I remember coming home from school and my Mom was all teary eyed. I don’t remember any of the TV or radio news coverage. It was not until a few days later, when pictures in LIFE and other magazines depicted the sequence of events along that motorcade route that led to the President’s untimely death. In my little mind at that time, to me it was like someone had killed God.
