8Well, I seem to be the antique on the board tonight! I was in the 7th grade, and had just come in from PE into the locker room when the principal came over the loudspeaker with the announcement that the President had been shot. It was the end of the day, and it wasn't until I got home that I found our he had died. I opened the back door, and my Mom was in the kitchen. I told her that the President had been shot, and she said, "Cathy don't you ever lie to me like that again. That's not funny." When I finally persuaded her that I wasn't lying, she turned on the TV. That is when we heard Walter Cronkite announce that the President had died.
Now to your question-I believe that Oswald did fire 2 shots. One that hit Kennedy and then Gov. Connally, and another that Kennedy. I think that there was definitely at least one other shooter on the grassy knoll and behind the fence, at the edge of the parking lot. Some say that he was in a military uniform, or that of a police officer. I've seen the enhanced tapes, and a badge is definitely visible.
I think the assasination was a conspiracy, and that Oswald was the "fall guy," and the patsy. I believe that Jack Ruby was a part of the conspiracy.
I find the historical shows fascinating, and I am so glad that you younger allnurses folks think so too. For good or for bad, it is a history that all Americans share.
BTW-I think the Warren Commission was totally bogus, and a fabrication. I watched the entire thing when it was shown on TV, (I was in the 8th grade then), and as I was watching it, knew I was being lied to. My parents were simply baffled by the whole goings-on. None of us could beleive that was the government's final say on the situation.
