February 3, 1959/ I was 10 years old, always hung out at my neighbors house, because the guys were older and cool.
I was standing on the grass next to my neighbor Bobby's driveway, his buddy was parked in the driveway next to me, in his Buick convertible, Blue white two tone, radio was playing Bee bop songs, the radio station KRLA. The song was interrupted with the news that Buddy Holley, Richie Valens, and J.P. Richards, had been killed earlier that morning in a plane crash. That's where the memory stops. I think my mind stopped, because it couldn't process anymore information at the time. I do recall everyone just walking around in a daze.
The next time I recall anything even remotely that burned into my memory, was 4 years later, November 22, 1963. I was standing at the corner of My Highschools Central Quad area waiting for my Algebra class. When a kid I don't know walked up and told me President Kennedy has been killed. I also remember one kid, saying that it was a good thing. That is where the input shorted out.
Since those two things occurred when I was so young, Nothing has left that mark on me EXCEPT one more time, July, 20, 1969. I think after those 3 events, nothing can surprise me anymore.
