"X" marks the spot

A friend was reviewing World events during his life. Events which, from that day forward, shifted how things are with whole nations both emotionally and physically for generations. One was the killing of President Kennedy in downtown Dallas. Though I was a baby when he was shot I have grown up and grown old effected and affected by the event. My friend is almost ten years older than I, he remembered his pre-adolescent emotion and saw how it changed the country, the world, as he watched from innocent young eyes. A man half my age walked with me into downtown Dallas who had studied the assassination and led me along the motorcade route to the spot where the president was hit. There on the street in Dallas, where the coarse of generations changed fortune, is painted an "X".
