Today is the anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. Having lived in Dallas all my life, I always felt connected to this tragedy, especially now that I go to school so close to Dealey Plaza. The father of one of the teachers at my high school had performed the tracheotomy on JFK when he was brought into Parkland that day. She showed us her father's shirt that was soaked with the president's blood. My cousin even did her clinical rotations at Parkland Hospital when she was a medical student and I hope to do the same. A song I recommend listening to today is "Friend of Mine" by The Byrds. I think it really capures the emotions that day evoked.
