The year is 1962. If you were alive then, and old enough to understand, you remember where you were when the news flashed its way into our TVs and radios on that November 22rd afternoon. I was in 4th grade at Mendham Township Elementary School in New Jersey. We were in Mrs. Roscoe’s class, when an announcement came over the loud speaker. We were in stunned disbelief. The teachers pointed us in the general directions of our neighborhood – and sent us home. I remember, Louie Sharp’s teenage sister telling us what was going to happen next. Ten minutes later, I burst through the kitchen door, yelling “Mom – President Kennedy’s dead! The Commies are gonna get us!!” That was over half a century ago. It just doesn’t seem possible.

On today’s American Photo Colorizing blog we have President Kennedy and Jon Jon sharing a light-hearted moment in the Oval Office. This is how I choose to remember the president, in this month where we remember the 52nd anniversary of that infamous day.

Christmas will sneak up on you before you know it. It isn’t too early to start looking through your family photo collection. A beautifully-colorized image of your ancestors (suitable for enlarging and framing) makes a wonderful keepsake for the entire family. This year, “Give the Christmas Present of Christmas Past!”
