Unfortunately, those moments usually occur in times of great tragedy.
We will soon mark the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. If you’re of a certain age, you probably remember exactly when and where you heard the news.
Maybe you, like my mother, were sitting in a rural elementary school classroom. Perhaps it was the first day of your first job, or maybe you were home sick.
You probably can remember what the room looked like and who you were with.
We’d love to hear that story.
The Daily Mail is collecting West Virginians’ remembrances of the Kennedy Assassination for our Nov. 22 edition. There also will be a special online component to go along with the story.
If you’d like to contribute, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Write as long or as short as you’d like, but be sure to include your contact information in case we need to reach you.
