  •  I remember RFK's killing but not MLK's (5+ / 0-)

    I was watching the TV when he came onto the stage in LA to give his California primary victory speech ("..on to Chicago!").  And was still watching a few minutes later when they announced that he was shot.  I was nine years old, and was watching it alone.  I don't know why.

    We didn't have a TV in 1963, so the JFK shooting only had an indirect impact on me.  I didn't watch the TV coverage, aside from seeing the funeral at a friend's house.  But the RFK shooting is indelibly etched in my mind, along with Neil Armstrong stepping onto the moon, and the Challenger explosion.
