Response to TNNurse (Original post)

36. I was in the Band room. We were practicing for the Thanksgiving Day football game.

Someone came in and told our Director. He in turn told us. There was a shocked reaction from everyone. Some crying, others just frozen in disbelief. After a spell the director asked us to play the Navy hymn "Eternal Father, Strong to Save" in honor of President Kennedy. It was difficult to get through but we did. It was a Friday and the following Thursday, Thanksgiving, we played it at halftime, the stands were hushed.

It's a day etched in my memory as it is with millions.

I post the Hymn here in JFK's Memory.
