really liked it
Read from April 19 to 21, 2010

Many of these letters were very touching but two things stuck out the most to me. 1) It is interesting to think back to how news stories used to spread before the internet, text messaging, round-the-clock news, etc. 2) So many of the same government issues are still on the table (health care, race relations, poverty).

Having not been alive in 1963, I found I could still relate to the shock and sadness of JFK's assassination. It brought back memories of 9/11 and collective grief of our nation.
