Where were you on November 22, 1963? I was in Mrs. Smith’s second grade at Riverview Elementary School, Anoka-Hennepin Independent, School District No. 11, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The principal, Mr. Humbert, made the announcement, over the school’s intercom system, about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I recall just staring at the speaker box hanging on the wall above the black chalkboard.
