JFK: Nov 22-25, 1963 - Seared Memories; Disbelief, Overwhelming Loss - Yet a Profound Feeling of Togetherness

Updated: 11/17/2013 - Those who were closest to events the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated still talk about what they witnessed as if it happened yesterday... As the limousine cruised out of the Dallas airport, 11-year-old Stephanie Landregan snapped pictures with her Brownie camera. Watching with her grandparents and four siblings, the schoolgirl felt a "giddy" thrill. Her mother was at the Trade Mart, where Kennedy was headed for lunch. The only family member who'd miss the rare presidential visit, it seemed, was her father. He had to be at work -- at Parkland Memorial Hospital.... Happy pandemonium greeted the presidential motorcade, and suddenly Buell Frazier could see Jackie Kennedy. "She's as pretty as the pictures," he remembers calling out to a woman nearby. And that quickly the motorcade glided by, enveloped by more cheers ahead. But then came another sound that Frazier first thought was a police motorcycle backfiring. Then another pop. And another. Frazier recognized the sound of gunfire. Instantly, all was mayhem. "People were running and screaming and hollering," Frazier says. "Somebody came running by as we were standing there on the steps and she says, `They've shot the president."'... "Jackie Kennedy sent word that she wanted the East Room, where the president would lie in state, to look as it did when Lincoln's body lay there," Goodwin remembers. He and others went to work. Someone was sent to the Library of Congress for a sketch and a newspaper description from Lincoln's time; artists and upholsterers were called in, and black crepe was carefully hung. "In the midst of all these activities we would alternately break down in tears," Goodwin says.... An unforgettable drama that began on Friday with the murder of the 35th president of the United States, continued on Sunday with the murder of his murderer, and came to a close Monday with the kindling of an eternal flame on a wind-swept Virginia hillside.... As one writer of the time suggested, the funeral was attended by 180 million Americans -- the entire stunned populace. Only 50,300,000 American households had televisions in 1963, and it was estimated that 41,553,000 sets were tuned into the funeral... As the coffin left the church, Jackie Kennedy leaned down and whispered a few words to John Jr., who turned 3 years old on that day. He lifted his right hand to his brow, a child's farewell salute to his father; it would be the most memorable moment in a day full of them... (more)
