Today we all remember JFK and the presidency that was cut short by his assassination today 50 years ago. I recently visited the Museum that is now housed in the building that was formerly known as the “Texas School Book Depository” and nowadays is the “Sixth Floor Museum”. It is well worth a visit, mostly because it gives you a reason to reflect back and it creates really powerful emotions. There is also a cell phone walking tour that you can add that will give you some facts while you walk around the surrounding area.
