“I was in 10th grade doing a religious paper in the local library in Pennsylvania when I heard the news and we all were sent home. I think it was a shock for no president, in recent times, had been assassinated. Who knows if he had lived what else would have transpired. It affected all of us.” Mary Luhr of Lake Wales.
