50 years

Has President Kennedy really been gone that long?  I was in class in high school when I heard the news.  And I can still remember watching the funeral past a bucket in the livingroom--we couldn't get a plumber to fix the leaking showerhead upstairs, because everyone was at home watching the funeral.  In retrospect, it seems to me that that was the end of the naive (white) American belief that such violence didn't happen here.
