Where JFK Was Assassinated on November 22, 1963
I took this shot on November 22, 2009. Forty Five years earlier at literally the same moment (12:30 pm) President John F. Kennedy was assassinated at this spot.
The shots that killed the JFK were fired from the building in the background. The X on the pavement where a tourist is posing for a picture is where the
fatal shot struck Kennedy. The Grassy Knoll is on the left side of the photo. On this day people came to remember and praise JFK and also to speculate about his
and to wonder what the world might be like today had he not be assassinated.
