CARTOON of the DAY: We Were Him That Day

The News-Herald - November 20
That tragic day in Dallas 50 years ago, we were him. Amid all the confusion, fear, uncertainty and general cultural turmoil in the aftermath of the assassination of his father - John F. Kennedy, our 35th President - we identified with John Jr. He was that little boy with the somewhat distant look in his eyes, as if he was trying to make sense of what was unfolding around him, but nonetheless trying to "be brave," as he was urged to do.

I selected this John F. Kennedy quote to accompany this image in memory of the 50th anniversary of his assassination because it reads like a personal message to all of us who were children when this tragedy struck. Do we get it? Are we living up to it?
That's the Point!
