Thread Name: Lyr Req: songs about the Kennedy assassination
Subject: RE: Kennedy Assassination
We were talking about this at work yesterday. One person compared the national shock and horror as matched only by that of 9/11. I think I agree.

The assassination of a national leader today would not cause nearly as strong a understandable but sad comment on how our perception of ourselves and our society have changed. We probably have a more realistic view of ourselves as a nation. It has made us cynical.
