End Of The Lone
50 years ago, a president was assassinated. Shortly afterward, the man who was believed to be responsible was captured.
Then gunned down.
Both deaths captured on film.
Both tied to conspiracy.
Was there a shooter from the grassy knoll?
Did the assassin work alone?
Was the assassins assassin just a restaurant owner who did what many others only thought of doing?
Before a nation was allowed to properly grieve and hope for justice for their beloved president….
a lone gunman silenced a lone gunman,
And left a nation in stunned silence…..
To grieve alone.
I was not even alive when these events occurred, but it is important to me, as a citizen of this country, to know the events, good and bad, that have shaped the nation that I call home.
I am not only an American, I am a Texan, which forever ties my neighbors and myself to this tragedy.
I have been to the memorial in downtown Dallas, I have taken the tour of that fateful day and the events that surrounded it and have no opinion or conclusion on what “really happened”.
All I can say, is I believe that these events had an effect on the collective of our country that has never been resolved.
I came across this newspaper in a second hand store a few years ago.
This newspaper marks the end of the lone.
