Back then Kindergarten was only 1/2 a day for me and I believe I was in the Morning session. Therefore, I was already home when it happened. [Of course my memory could be wrong and I was in the afternoon session and was sent home].
For many years after that the big question people would ask each other was "Where were you when Kennedy was shot?".
So where were you?
ps: if you want to call this a mini MEME you can ;-)
