I don't remember much. However, I think the announcement may have been made while I was on the playground because I remember standing there frozen while numerous people broke into tears. I now think I was too young to realize what it all meant, other than the fact that Gramma, especially, would be affected.
What I learned this week from watching the clips was that Jackie stood by the Johnsons as he was sworn into office, wearing the same blood-splattered pink suit she had on earlier that day. I had probably noticed that before, but this time, to me, that is just ominous and a glaring testimony of how rapidly all the events took place. Such a life-altering day.
