Kennedy's assassination nearly 50 years ago forever is woven into the fabric of society, anyone old enough to remember the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on America likely can recall exactly where they were and what they were doing when word came that the Twin Towers in New York City had been hit by two commercial jets.
