We had a TV set up behind us running constantly with footage of famous Democrats through the this century. A kid, who looked about 8, stopped and stared at JFK like he was under hypnosis. " Do you know who that is?" I asked. He shuffled around a bit and came back to say " I know but I can't remember." Henceforth came a brief history of President Kennedy and how he died. "Did somebody run over him?" I replied no that someone shot him from window in Dallas. "He was a good and honest man of much wealth who cared about the citizens of this country and took the office of president seriously."
He stared at me, and at MLK behind me on the screen following JFK and I swear I saw the light bulb go on.
