50 Years Later

President John Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963)

The years go by way too quickly and fifty years later all eyes of the world are back to the horrifying day that happened in Dallas, Texas.

This past August our friend and gracious tour guide drove us by the site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas. The actual spot on Elm Street (Dealey Plaza) was marked with  X’s where the motorcade was when President JFK was shot.

Dealey Plaza.is marked with an “X” on the road where the motorcade was when President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot 50 years ago today.

This week the city tore up the part of the road where “X’s” marked the approximate spots where President John F. Kennedy was shot 50 years ago for road work.

I have mixed feelings about the X. Did it bring our attention to the terrible murder or in some way honor the memory of the 35th President of the United States of America. What are your thoughts on this?

Until next time with more Sweet Conclusions,

  1. To me, its like they are covering a piece of History up. It is like they are saying its time to move on. I have never visited that area, but I think it is significant that the x should be left alone. JMHO.

  2. As you drive along many highways in America, you sometimes see a marker of
    some type to call attention to a historical event that happened in that place.
    The X on the road where Kennedy was shot is the very least that could be done
    for that tragic moment.
