The memory remains vivid and real for nearly every American old enough to recall it.

Where were you Nov. 22, 1963?

What were you doing when you heard the news that bullets felled President John F. Kennedy in Dallas that day?

As we approach next month's 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination, The Valley Independent wants to hear your memories and see what you've saved for five decades.

Tell us about that moment when horror spread from Dealey Plaza to the Mid-Mon Valley and beyond.

Normal living stopped for hours.

Were you in school or at work?

Who told you?

Where did you go?

Do you have photographs from a Kennedy visit to the Valley?

Do you have memorabilia we can see?

Please send your thoughts, snapshots and contact information to staff writer Stacy Wolford by calling her at 724-684-2640 or e-mailing her at swolford@tribweb.com.
