Dad's Tears for JFK

STORY BY: Anna Sutherland
YEAR: 1963
LOCATION: Montreal, QC

Anna was 10 years old in Montreal when John F. Kennedy was assassinated. She was watching the funeral on TV while sitting on the "davenport in the rec-room". When the riderless horse with the boot turned backwards went by, she saw her father with tears streaming down his face - she didn't know men could cry. Thanks for sharing, Anna.
