53 years ago today our President John F Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. In the lifetimes of many of the readers of this blog, that event and the WTC bombing marked a short moment when time stopped and this country became one.

I remember Eric Severeid on CBS News telling the viewers that morning in 1963 that whatever affect it might have on world history, those watching would always remember where we were at that moment in time.

Let us pause today for a moment and before Thanksgiving, remember that this great country has survived wars and terrible disasters and will hopefully prevail  as the pendulum eventually comes back to the middle.
