Thank you for sharing this memory. It's quite something, and yet, the second to last paragraph beautifully expresses the innocence and uncertainty of third-graders. I appreciated this piece for its honesty - and uniqueness!

This is one of the most unexpected reactions to the news of JFK's assassination that I've ever heard.

On the other side of the country, I was in the fourth grade in Sacramento. Mrs. Newton wrote on the blackboard that the President had been shot. She was crying. The class was completely silent. We were then excused for the rest of the day.
