Nov. 22: President John F. Kennedy died on this day. Dion Remembers.....

Today is the 47th anniversary of the assassination of  the 35th  President of the Unites States.

He was 46 years old when he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.
I visited Dealey Plaza in Dallas in the early 1980s with a friend from Slovenia, then part of Yugoslavia. As we looked down in silence from Oswald's window in the Texas Book Depository building  - where it's believed the shots were fired-  my friend put his hand on my shoulder and said, "The whole world  mourned that day."
