Nov. 22, 1963, is a day many Americans will never forget. It is the day our nation lost a president in a tragic event that changed the course of history. As John F. Kennedy was assassinated in downtown Dallas, many Missouri Baptist University faculty members remember exactly where they were when they heard the news. Today they reflect on that fragile day in our nation’s history and on the impact it left for generations to follow.
