"It is said that the human mind has a greater capacity for remembering the pleasant than the unpleasant. But today was a day that will live in memory and in grief. Only history can write the importance of this day: Were these dark days the harbingers of even blacker ones to come, or like the black before the dawn shall they lead to some still as yet indiscernible sunrise of understanding among men, that violent words, no matter what their origin or motivation, can lead only to violent deeds? This is the larger question that will be answered, in part, in the manner that a shaken civilization seeks the answers to the immediate question: Who, and most importantly what, was Lee Harvey Oswald? The world’s doubts must be put to rest. Tonight there will be few Americans who will go to bed without carrying with them the sense that somehow they have failed. If in the search of our conscience we find a new dedication to the American concepts that brook no political, sectional, religious or racial divisions, then maybe it may yet be possible to say that John Fitzgerald Kennedy did not die in vain. That’s the way it is, Monday, November 25, 1963. This is Walter Cronkite, good night."

J.F.K.23 November 1963
Grief came flooding inover every hill,down all our streetsright into the heart of town,the day the President was shot,insisting that he lie in statehere with usfor three days and nights,until they camewith a caisson,behind whicha veiled mournerwith children walked,taking him as we watchedout across the viaductand on up overour steepest hilluntil we lost themfrom sight.
Then silence hung long over our townuntil the morning the rains ceasedwhen we woke to sunbreaking through dark clouds,and looking up we saw gently rippling Vsagainst the emblazoned skyand heard flocks of wild geesecalling down to usto rise up, to carry on.
With spirits gladdenedwe set to removing flowersand the portraits from off the streets,candles and lamps were gatheredfrom curbs and fencesand then we stripped the treesof those long black ribbonsthat during those days of griefhad been fluttering in the breeze.
