For people of a certain age, the date Nov. 22, 1963 triggers strong memories.

It was a Friday afternoon. Men and women were still at work, children were still in school when the first news bulletin reported President Kennedy’s motorcade in Dallas had been fired upon.

The nation would later learn Kennedy had been killed in the attack.

Many can remember where they were and what they were doing when they learned the president had been shot. With the 50th anniversary of the assassination coming next month, The Daily Gazette looking for your memories.
