Where Were You?

Where Were You?

Where Were You Where were you when Kennedy died? Can you remember when the shot got fired? I was a kid just six years old. But I remember, I remember Oswald. I remember the place, I remember the time, I remember something was lost. Where were you when Elvis left? The king is dead the radio said. I was twenty-one and newly wed. But I remember.

A Bad Apple After Steve Jobs

It was a sad day for me, as it was for millions I suppose when Steve Jobs passed away. However, that was some years ago now, and I think I am well over my grieving.
