November 22, 1963 is a day in history that will never be forgotten. John F. Kennedy, the man who some praised as the greatest, or would be greatest president in United States history had been shot and killed in Dallas. As two writers, George D. Gaskell and Daniel Wright, note, “The president’s life and achievements, the manner of his untimely death, and what he might have achieved, touched the heart of the American public.”(1) That Day in Dallas rocked the entire country and it was through the journalism and experience of that tragedy that that the Collective American memory was born.
