Remembering President John Kennedy 50 Years Later. By Cherokee Billie. Click picture to read article
For those of us who were alive in 1963 we can never forget Friday November 22, 1963. President Kennedy was greatly loved by so many and it was unbelievable that he could be cut down so quickly.

I was twelve years old and in junior high school when the announcement came over the intercom stating that the President had been shot. Everyone in the class got very quiet. Not much was said. An hour later the announcement came that the President was dead. It was difficult to believe because he was such a likable man. The teachers started crying and yet we stayed in school. Back then in Los Angeles California they didn’t send us home, even when it was a major tragedy. That afternoon when my mother picked me up at school I asked her if she had heard about the president being dead, of course she had.

All of us as a nation stayed by our television or radio and watched and listened to all of the events and information as it came through. The funeral was one of the saddest moments of my young life.

I posted a memoir yesterday about my getting to vote for John Kennedy in the election because he really was dynamic. He brought vitality into government. Prior to him running for president all of government seemed boring to me. He made me want to become involved in my country and helping others. One of the great legacies he left behind was the Peace Corps, which to this day still helps people in other countries as well as helping Americans understand other cultures. His speeches were so profound and they were recorded and made into records and I bought each one of them as they were released. To this day his speeches resonate with people.

President Kennedy inspired all of us young people to be better than we were and I think that is a beautiful legacy to leave behind.

Amazingly his death had been predicted hundreds of years previously by the great prophet Nostradamus.

In a prophecy indexed 1 Q26, Nostradamus in 1555 wrote:
“The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt.
The evil deed predicted by the bearer of a petition.”

President John Kennedy was shot shortly after twelve noon 50 years ago in Dallas Texas. In Nostradamus day guns had not been invented so it makes sense that he would see it as a thunderbolt. Jeane Dixon, one of the foremost prophets of modern times, earned international notoriety for predicting JFK’s assassination as early as 1956. The last month before he was killed she repeatedly tried to get the message to him to be careful that he was about to be assassinated. I believe the “bearer of the petition” was Ms. Dixon. Nostradamus may have chronicled her unsuccessful attempt to forewarn the president.

Nostradamus was an incredible prophet, it is amazing to see how he visualized something centuries ahead and it points out that some things are destined to happen.

For me it seems like these events happened yesterday. I would like people to remember what a great impact John Kennedy had upon the American people. Generations that have followed cannot quite understand what he represented at the time. There will never be another one like him.

  1. A terrible tragedy, but what grace and dignity Jackie showed that historic day.

    • It was indeed a great tragedy. For many of us we lost hope. Jacqueline Kennedy helped so many people get through this with her dignity and grace. Thank you for your comment. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie

  2. I was 6 years old when President Kennedy was killed. I remember the intercom crackling to life and the Principal saying; “All classes are canceled. Send the children home to be with their parents.” His voice was off. I did not know why, at the time. At first we were thrilled to be getting our of school early. But there was a thickness in the air. And our joy was short lived. Something was very wrong. We walked the rest of the way home in complete silence. Mi Mum was in tears when we got home. We sat at the big table in the dining room and said a prayer for President Kennedy, his family and our Nation.

    Years later, I watched a documentary on one of my favorite British import shows “Doctor Who”. The BBC had to delay airing the first episode for the announcement of President Kennedy’s Assassination. It wasn’t until then that I realized how much hope other countries had for his administration. The impact still showed in the faces of the British people they interviewed. He was obviously was very popular worldwide.

    • Dear Teresa: You have a wonderful memory of this tragic day for one who was so young. It was really beautiful that your family said prayers at this time. President Kennedy was loved worldwide and still is today. I often ponder about what the world would be like today had he not been assassinated. I believe it would be a better place. Thank you for your comment. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie
