JFK Interview

The JFK Assassination
This interview was conducted with my friend's father on the assassination of JFK,
and the impact it had on life in America.
Q: How old were you when JFK was assassinated?
A: I was only 15 at the time, but I can vividly recall it
Q: What was your very first reaction?
A: Well, I was shocked I really couldn't believe it. I mean, you hear about the
Lincoln's assassination but it never seemed real. Now JFK was assassinated and it
seemed like it could never happen, it was just like a dream.
Q: How did your parents react?
A: They seemed more upset than sad. They couldn't believe that this could
happen, they were upset that such a man as JFK could be dead, just like that. He did so
much to change the way people think, act, and feel in this country and he'd never be
back.
Q: What was the general mood?
A: At the time we lived in a very tight neighborhood in Pittsburgh. Around that
neighborhood you could see things change. Morale was lower than I could ever
remember, everybody was sad.
Q: Did they play the video back on TV?
A: I don't ever really remember seeing it replayed over and over on TV, they
really didn't start showing it until the 70's it was pretty much just word of mouth.
