DFO: I, of course, know exactly where I was at when I heard the news about John F. Kennedy's assassination. I was on my way to lunch in the Gridley (Calif.) High School cafeteria. Someone mentioned that the president had been shot. We didn't hear that JFK had died until the following period, 5th period. I was in my chemistry class. We listened to the radio report for awhile. Then, they dismissed school for the day.

Question: Where were you when you heard that Kennedy was assassinated? And/or: Why did this murder so deeply affect the lives of Baby Boomers?
