JRR Tolkien and the worlds fantacists lost CS Lewis AND . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

Aldous Huxley on 11/22/1963 also! That being said--I learned of JFK's shooting while standing in line for lunch at school. I was told this by the class clown so I initially poopooed this news. I was in the sixth grade being one of the youngest in my class at Hartford Elementary School in Chandler, Arizona. I was still 11. After lunch we returned to class with the loud speaker tuned to the radio, When Walter Cronkite gave those fateful words that President Kennedy was dead, the principal told the teachers to dismiss class early and told the students to await word of plans for attending class next week. Most of my classmates were either shocked or in tears. I admit I was one of the few boys who did cry. BUT my parents were true red republicans who voted for Nixon, When I got home, my mother was in tears but told me that classes for next week were cancelled and were to made up later. So we got the entire week off for school because of mourning for JFK and that solemn Thanksgiving! I will never forget that weekend!! It's seered into my memory! I watched TV that entire weekend up to and including the burial. I remembered all the international dignitaries that attended the funeral. Too bad the loss of Lewis and Huxley was lost in that weekend! So goes the remembrance of that terrible weekend! Fifty years goes by quickly!
