Your Views

The Kennedy assassination was a kind of tectonic shift... we knew during that weekend and certainly within days of that weekend in November 1963, that things would never be the same again.

We thought that we could change the world. This is the key thing that I think ended, for me certainly, with the murder of Kennedy.

American Experience values viewers' responses and we read all letters. Due to volume, we regret we cannot publish every letter; we publish as many as we can which reflect proportionally the range of views. Short letters are more likely to be published, and those with all capital letters, less likely. All letters are subject to editing for length and clarity. Note: for approximately two weeks after the initial broadcast of this program, American Experience staff will select and publish letters. After that, letters are not monitored. However, if there is a national rebroadcast of this program, new letters will be selected and published at that time.
