Did you forget what today is the anniversary of?

Admittedly I did - until I read this online..

It's the 45th anniversary of the assassination of JFK.

For years I recalled the day and time and the exact feelings of that moment - where I was and who I was with....but now I forgot what day it happened. It's no longer front page news anywhere that I can see. [I saw it as a small mention on a blog.]

We are consumed with the in-coming administration and the guessing game about who gets what post...In this atmosphere it's even odder that we all collectively, it seems, forgot about JFK - weird - because for me and many others of my age the Obama campaign and the feeling of hope and a future is a reminder of what the Kennedy years brought..
