It always chokes me up to see the clip of Walter Cronkite making that difficult announcement, taking his glasses on and off and obviously overcome with emotion.
I remember hearing the news on the radio that sat up on top of the fridge. I was sweeping the floor! (At ten years old already a bit of a housewife.) I'm pretty sure it was a Saturday morning when I heard the news.
Such a sad day. I've always admired the way Jackie held strong throughout for her children. In fact, whatever anyone has to say about her in other ways, she was one amazing mother.
I wasn't alive for that, but I know it tore my mom up. She was such a huge Kennedy fan.
