Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walkin' up over the hill,
With Abraham, Martin, and John...

The Kennedy Assassination

I was four years old when John F. Kennedy was assassinated. While I do not remember that assassination I do remember the assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King vividly. The JFK assassination is a part of the American memory which many believe was a significant, if not critical, turning point for the United States. The assassination is commemorated in Dallas at the 6th Floor Museum, which is housed in the Texas School Book Depository, the site where Lee Harvey Oswald is to believed to fired the shots that killed the 35th President of the United States. People visiting the Museum all have different experiences and react differently to the artifacts of the assassination. The Museum maintains a digital presence, complete with a memorial book where people can record their thoughts about the experience. Use the following multimedia to experience the many levels of the assassination and then write a reflection that could be place in the memorial book. What would you write?
