Skimming blogs this morning, I found Jan Adams entry on Ronnie Bennett’s blog. ”Fourty Seven Years Ago Today” moved me to introspection.
Where was I that moment? My husband was in school, my daughter Lessa was at day care, and I was on lunch break at the Federal Reserve Bank lunch room. I remember that I had a half avocado in my hand that was filled with French dressing….the oil and vinegar kind. Someone told me that Kennedy had been shot. I didn't believe them. I thought they were joking with me, and I continued thinking that it was a joke until I got home after work.
Up until that moment, I had been a political neutral following the Republican voting patterns of my family. Kennedy's death changed me, woke me up and put me into action.
I’m moved to ask you what you were doing that day?
