The day Kennedy died

The media is full of reflections on the assassination of President John F Kennedy exactly 50 years ago today. At the time, I was a teenager of 15 attending a Roman Catholic secondary school in Manchester. I reproduce below, without comment, what I wrote in my diary that day:

“The Beatles were No 1 in the Top Ten again and had three EPs in the Top 30.

During Religious Instruction, did Mortal Sin. Also went to the weekly Young Christian Students meeting.

Heard of the tragic death of President Kennedy.”
