Tragedy in Dallas
With my Pilot Point "family," ventured to downtown Dallas on a Sunday afternoon. It was here on this stretch of Elm Street at 12:30pm on November 22, 1963 that 35th President of the United States, John F, Kennedy, was assassinated while in his motorcade. He would later be pronounced dead at nearby Parkland Memorial Hospital at 1pm. Behind me where I stood to take this picture is the former Texas School Book Depository is where suspected assassin Lee Harvey Oswald fired the fatal shots from the 6th floor. To this day, I still ponder who really killed him - the CIA? the Mafia? Castro? the Soviets?
