This is a remembrance of one of two very important events of 1963! Was just watching some footage from tv in our hotel room while waiting too go to breakfast. Dreams still to be fulfilled!

Andrew

Unfortunately the other event will be much more somber. You realize how much different the world is from that of 1963 when you watch the newsreels of President Kennedy's Assassination. Genuine and heartfelt grief at the loss of their President. Dreams always need to be fulfilled, but so much has been accomplished in these last fifty years. Let us never loose sight of that.

Yes, Roger, many of us remember very well the events of November 22, 1963, as well as the march a few months earlier. The one gave rise to conspiracy theories that persist to this day; the other to some lasting changes.
