JFK

On this day in 1963 JFK was assinated. I remember it like it was yesterday. It seems we were different people back then. Everybody mourned the terrible tragedy. We were able to put aside our political differences and mourn the horrible deed

My God! That's just disgusting!

The justification the company came up with for such a despicable product is incredible!!

The Glasgow-based firm Traffic said "JFK Reloaded" was an educational "docu-game" that would help disprove conspiracy theories about Kennedy's death.
Traffic's managing director, Kirk Ewing, said the game -- available as an Internet download for $9.99 -- would "stimulate a younger generation of players to take an interest in this fascinating episode of American history."


It sometimes sickens me to what lengths people will go to make money. This is one of those times. Sad

I, too, remember what I was doing-sewing curtains for the den.

But I also remember that there were incidents of schoolchildren who cheered, and the organized groups who hated him.

And the convenient killing of Oswald.

However, you are correct in that the horror and shock of the event precipiated a true national period of mourning.
