Forty-five years already

Nov. 22, 1963

I was in fourth grade at Holy Family School in Nutley. I vaguely remember an announcement and looking at the clock - about 2:40. Then it was a long weekend and everything was closed and there was nothing on TV except the assassination news on all seven TV channels.

I remember thinking the reason the casket was closed was so they wouldn't show the blood. My older sister's friend's kid brother said the same thing as me.
