22nd of November

This morning I flew into Dallas to visit family for Thanksgiving.

One of our activities today was to visit the site where JFK was shot. Amazingly as we started at the first part of the museum with our audio devices on, my brother noticed the date on which JFK was killed, November 22, 1963 (43 years ago today) and he was shot at 12:30 in the afternoon. At 12:30 today, we were on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, at the windows from where Lee Harvey Oswald shot his rifle. We could not have timed it better had we tried.

Also, out on the “grassy noll” was John Lennon’s piano (from which he composed “imagine”). They are doing a campaign for peace in which they travel around and take pictures of the piano at various sites around the world. The “grassy noll” was the first place to have a photo for the campaign.
