I just have received a alert from the New York Times that Walter Cronkite had died. Did you ever feel like a bit of history or your childhood is gone? What do I remember most about him??? I remember when I was in school in 1963 and President Kennedy had been assassinated.....he was giving the report and had tear and his speech was broken.......I hope I never hear or see such an event as the assassination of a President again in my life time. It was heart wrenching and unbelievable at the same time.

The kid has started a blog. Please visit and comment, she likes getting "mail."

See the link on "My Blog List."


  1. My high school English teacher Mrs. White was sitting in an Existential Literature class when she learned Kennedy was shot.

  2. Yes I did cancel my face book. I didn't care for it much anyway but when I got a message from 3 different people that Facebook had a flaw and was showing phone numbers. So I canceled. I remember so clearly when Walter Cronkite reported on Kennedy's death. He was visibly moved.

  3. I almost forgot I was feeding my youngest son lunch. He was only about a year and a half.

  4. I was still 2 years away from being born, when Kennedy was shot. I still remember Cronkite all throughout my childhood. It does feel as though all the icons we grew up with are all dying away. (Hugs)Indigo

    P.S. My new blog is here:
