John F Kennedy, The Encounter My name is Matt Malloy. Today I will be traveling to beautiful Dallas, Texas to visit the Dealey Plaza. Today I will witness one of the most tragic events in recent history, the assasination of president John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

I remeber a documentary I had watched on History Chanel that showed where the sniper is and the path of the bullit so I knew where to avoid to not get killed. The president asked me if I had ever been in a limousine and I sain no even though in the future my father owns one. When we reached Dealey Plaza it was 12:25 p.m and there were thousands of people screamiung for the president while he just smiled and waved.
