I remember that day very well.  I was 7

"I wish they would remember that the charge to Peter was "Feed my sheep", not "Try experiments on my rats", or even "Teach my performing dogs new tricks". - C. S. Lewis

I was in the 5th grade celebrating my friend's 11th birthday (he turned 59 today!) when the principal of our middle school interupted and broadcast the radio live over the public address system.  We we sent home promptly.  

My former parish priest was studying at Holy Cross, classes were cancelled, and the students were called to the chapel for the Trisagion prayers.

Read JFK's inaugural address; I think it's one of the best speeches ever given.

My 6th grade teacher Mrs. Simpson came into the classroom crying and told us.

I wasn't even born yet.

Memory eternal.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
