Do you remember where you were?

This is addressed to the handul of people on my flist who were alive 43 years ago.
 
How many of you remember what you were doing on ths day in 1963 when you heard the news about JFK?  I was in my eighth-grade classroom, and I can still close my eyes and remember every bit of that day from the point when Mr. Peterson from the class next door walked into our room and whispered in my teacher's ear.

I was in my 5th grade classroom. One of the boys in class had come to school late that day, and he'd heard about it on the news in the car. He was whispering about it to another kid in class. The teacher did one of those officious "if it's so important why don't you tell the whole class" things, and he told us. I imagine it was confirmed shortly thereafter though I don't remember that part. I think I was still young enough to not really understand the implications of what had happened.
