Tom Eblen: Remembering Kennedy's visit to the University of Kentucky

'Many people my age and older can remember where they were when they heard that President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. I was 5 years old that day, with my mother at a church craft show. I don't remember it. But I do have a memory from three years earlier, or at least I think I do.'
