  •  Bobby's death was like the last flickering light (13+ / 0-)

    going out. It hit me hard as well.

    Thank you for your wonderful comment.

    •  Bobby visited the small city near where I grew up (0+ / 0-)

      in north central Indiana just a month or so before he was killed.  I was 14 and my mom took me to see him.  He was on a campaign trip via train; the train stopped in the middle of town and he gave a short speech.  What an impressive young man he was.

      I was looking forward to voting for him when he would have ran for his second term.  My parents and I were watching our black and white tv as he was killed.  One of the worst days in my young life.

      I was in 3rd grade when JFK was killed; they let us out of school early, and I was glued to the tv for the next few days.
