Elicit emotion about the events that happened this day 53 years ago on a beautiful, sunny, warm day in Dallas, Texas still remains despite the passage of time.

It was a Friday afternoon when news of the tragedy hit the airwaves that there had been an incident and that it involved the president of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

As the hours passed more and more information was filtering through and everybody learned that they shot Kennedy and he was taken to the nearest available authorized hospital then later they announced that he had passed away leaving everybody  in the state of shock.

All television programs and radio seemed frozen in time because the only news that everybody was discussing was the assassination.

What we got was the who, how, what, and when that the media pundits and talking heads repeated over and over again giving very little new information  to a very anxious local and global audience trying to absorb  and understand it all.

One thing that everybody came to realize quickly was that the world we knew had suddenly and irrevocably changed and there was no going back.

This my contribution for WP single word prompt:”ELICIT”.
