48 Years Ago Today

Today marks the 48th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.  Kennedy was fatally shot on Friday November 22, 1963 at 12:30pm, Central Standard Time, while travelling in a Presidential motorcade through Dallas, Texas.  The pursuing ten-month investigation by the Warren Commission concluded that the President was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone and Jack Ruby also acted alone when he killed Oswald before Oswald could stand trial.  These conclusions over the years have been considered ‘suspect’ to the American public.  Today as I read about what happened on that day 48 years ago it gave me goose bumps.  There were so many convoluted details pertaining to the assassination and theories as to what really did happen.  The who’s, the why’s, the where’s.  It made me think of the saying “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive”.   On that note, weaving is a method of fabric production where two sets of yarns, the warp yarn and the weft yarn are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric.  The method in which the warp and weft are interwoven determines the type of fabric.  The three basic weaves are the plain weave, the twill weave and the satin weave.  Weaving was originally performed on a hand-loom but the Industrial Revolution brought about mechanized weaving.   And while on the subject of fabric, Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of J.F.K., became a fashion icon for her taste in clothing worn during her husband’s presidency.  The first lady was also known for the restoration of the White House interior which she thought was furnished with undistinguished pieces that lacked a sense of history.  The first Lady quoted, “I just feel that everything in the White House should be the best”.  On that note, may your ‘house’ always be at its best!
