I Was Five Years Old

Written by: Paula Swanson

The day was November twenty second, of the year nineteen sixty three. I saw every family member, with their eyes glued to the T.V. It is a day I'll remember, not just because Kennedy had just died. It was the first time, for me, that I saw my momma cry.
