    The exact scene I was in at the time. All three channels had continuous coverage.

    It is tough telling little kids something like a president being killed…I remember some news station making a big deal about when a class was told about it and then were told they were to go home, school was closing…So all they heard was that school was out, so they cheered…so of course all that news station reported was that the kids cheered when they heard about the shooting…Yep, great reporters even in those days…

    Most Pluggers I know were at work – not at school – when they heard the news about the tragic events in Dallas.

    May America continue to miss you, JFK (I was born 21 years after the event).

    I was in the third grade, but I got the news the same way. I think we were also sent home right after the announcement.

    I was a college freshman. Our elderly instructor, a woman, continued teaching, with both male and female students crying. One was literally sick to her stomach. One walked out. She continued until the dean returned and told her to let us go the college had shut down. I wish I could forget her and her total indifference.

    In my case the teacher was a nun and had us pray for JFK.

    I was grateful that my boss was out on assignment. He was a Goldwater fan and I thought he would be dancing with joy. His absence gave me the opportunity to grieve without his ranting.

    College sophomore, we didn’t find out until after the class was over.

    Was in a fifth grade after school fun group in the gym; a teacher or the principal came in and told us. After crying for awhile we were all sent home.

    I was in 10th grade, don’t remember what class but there was a tv in the room and an admin person came in and told us and the teacher turned the tv on. We were in Arlington, Va., very close to Washington DC, so the coverage was extensive. We left school at the regular time which was 2:30 or so anyway.
