In study hall at Albany High School! We heard rumors for about a hour, then a announcement was made and we got a early dismissal.

Note NOTHING was said about this event on ANY news I saw, that is 3 local stations and 4 national news. Even our local ultra liberal papers no mention of this event.

This is also happening with December 7 events, nothing or extremely very little is said.

I also remember I was watching live when Lee Harvey Oswald was shot. I think it was a Sunday morning after the assassination.

I was a freshman in HS and heard the announcement between classes. No early dismissal, but classes were mostly just open discussion. I was also watching Ruby shooting Oswald on live TV.

Ironic how my view of conspiracy theories has changed from then to now.

Well, 56 years ago my mom was 9 years old. I wasn’t around but have heard her talk about living through that.

I was in Physics lab during the last period of the day of my senior year in HS. We were directed to put away the various combustibles and explosives and go home.

My parents always told me of the two days that they had photographic memory of: Dec. 7, 1941 and April 12, 1945, the day when FDR died. For me, November 22, 1963 and Sept. 11, 2001 are those two days for me.
