  1. I was 7 years old and living in Daly City, Ca. My father brought the TV into our kitchen from the front room, so we could watch this address while we ate. Afterward, I ask him what was happening. He replied, “The Russians have missiles pointed at our house”. Didn’t phase me one bit. And I think the next time the TV was set up in the kitchen was the next November, when JFK was foully murdered.
