No, of course You Tube didn't kill Kennedy, maybe, but how much better would my research project have been if I'd had access to it 20+ years ago.
I just finished watching Cold Case, I'm a recent inductee to the show, and tonight's episode included shots of the Kennedy assassination. Those black and white pictures and videos never fail to bring me back to my days in high school. Nope not a child of the sixties, but as my mom used to say, I was a hippie born too late.
But I digress...
Why then Kennedy and my years in high school? ~Freshman year research paper~
Guess what I did my report on? LOL, yep the conspiracy surrounding the death of our 35th president. I was enthralled with who really shot Kennedy. I read the books. Watched the videos. Scoured the pictures, many of which were gruesome in their detail. I wanted to know, needed to know, was it really Oswald or some mystery shooter? I was in conspiracy overload!
Needless to say I never learned the truth. ;-)
My report, full of conjecture and gruesome photos, only garnered me a sad little B-, I don't think the teacher appreciated the subject much, of course I was touting the Oswald was a patsy theory and this was a Texas high school...ooh maybe she knew the truth! haha
Anyway, I wonder, with easy access to You Tube and the plethora of video of that day, the motorcade, the grassy knoll and the TX School Book Depository, would I have gotten a higher grade on my report? Who knows, but it would have been one cool report.
Well, enough of my rambling tonight, it's funny how something as simple as a TV show can spark the old memory. And bring on new ones... I'm thinking, a time-travel book? One where I could answer my own questions, any way I want!!
Have a great week!
