It is an honor to be a 4-H club member.
We get to see the President here in November.
This is a day which we will long remember.
I know Mr. Kennedy wants us to get a good glance.
However, I think he is taking an awful chance.
People are coming to see him from near and far.
He and the first lady are riding in an open car.
That old warehouse building doesn’t look too pretty.
Couldn’t his motorcade go through another part of the city?
I thought his trip to Dallas was long overdue.
I can’t wait to see the President as he passes through.
Let’s wait right here to get a good view.
