Fifty Years

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on November 22, 2013








Fifty years ago, John Kennedy went to the oval office in the sky. Did Marilyn Monroe greet him?

The bullets hit Mr.Kennedy at 12:30. He arrived at the hospital at 12:37. He had a faint heartbeat on arrival, but quickly succumbed to his wounds.

In Georgia, PG was nine years old. He was in Miss Mckenzie’s fourth grade class. There was going to be an assembly soon, and the class was going to perform. There was a rehearsal in the cafetorium, and some of the kids were acting up. They went back to the class, and PG thought they were going to be chewed out about the misbehavior in the cafetorium. Instead, Miss Mckenzie came into the room, and told the kids that President Kennedy had been shot during a parade in Dallas Texas. She did not say anything about his condition. One kid cheered the news.

School let out at the regular time, and PG walked home. His mother and brother were crying. He was told that the president had died. The cub scouts meeting that afternoon was canceled.

Later that night, a plane arrived in Washington. The tv cameras showed a gruesome looking man walk up to a microphone. He was introduced as President Lyndon Johnson. This may have been the worst moment of that day. Pictures by “Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”.

    I watched a program recently that puts Marilyn Monroe deep into the gut of the whole conspiracy of JFK’s assassination. It had to do with MM’s knowledge (via JFK) that aliens existed and how she was hell bent on revealing it to be truth to the world. It is why, as the theory goes, she was killed, too. Everybody’s got a theory, huh?

    Fifty years from Sept. 11, 2001, school kids of the era will be remembering where they were and what they were doing…stuff like that you never forget.

    I worked at Hilton in College Station, Texas when The George Bush Presidential Library was ceremoniously opened. I took Lady Bird Johnson’s room service breakfast order…it was a simple meal, I think it was like toast and grapefruit, can’t be too sure though. Also got a picture of old Nance.

    Oh yeah, the answer to your question is: Sure, why not? Heaven has a place for everyone.
