KENNEDY DIED IV
By Adrian [email@example.com]
We were staying in a guest house at Mosman overlooking Sydney Harbour (now an extremely expense part of Sydney), and I had befriended this very nice young American man. I remember a bright sunny day and I had met him as he got off the ferry at the nearby jetty.
We were chatting happily on the way back to the Guest House. I wanted to talk during the News in the communal lounge room.
And then that Newsbreak: "Kennedy Assassinated"!
It didn't mean anything to me as young as I was. But I was acutely aware of the deep shock on everyone's faces - and especially that on the young American's. He was as white as a ghost! That memory has stayed with me these last forty years.
