Name an important historical event that occurred during your life, and post where you were and what you doing at the time. November 22, 1963-President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. I was a sophmore at University High School and was in Biology class. I still remember looking at a picture of paramecium when the announce ment was made that he'd been shot. It was close to 11AM, and class was almost ready to break. The student body gathered in the courtyard waiting for news and praying that he'd survive. He didn't, of course, as we all learned in the next half hour.
