JFK...His Last Words.....

Considering the confusion, panic, and hysteria that ensued that traumatic day, you have to wonder: What were JFK's last words?

The rain had stopped in Dallas, and despite the tragedy ahead, the sun peeked out. Jackie had reached for her sunglasses. But JFK wanted to connect with the people of Dallas: he wanted the convertible without the bubble top; he wanted them to see his face, his eyes, even as the motorcade slipped by....
