MT. VERNON — Every generation seems to go through a historic event that sets it apart.

For this generation, the scars of 911 still penetrate the inner soul. For older folks, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, in the words of President Theodore Roosevelt "will live in infamy."

For those 60 years of age or older, Friday's anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy is that event.

Some Jefferson County residents remember that fateful day and share their thoughts with us.

Check at our web site Friday for comments made by local residents who remember Nov. 22, 1963.
