Where were you 50 years ago today? Do you know who else died that day?
John F. Kennedy 1917-1963
C. S. Lewis 1898-1963

President Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Texas.This weekend there will be numerous
television specials on the assassination and its continuing affect on the
United States.But did you know that on
the same day President Kennedy (b. 1917) died the great Christian apologist C.
