Suddenly, it's 1963 again

Bit late to this but can't stop thinking about it. Of all the iconic images of the dreadful day of Jack Kennedy's assassination, this is one that burns the most vividly in my memory. I saw this unfold live on the television as an 11 year old who loved my President and the First Family and was struggling to make sense of this shocking event.
Jackie in that blood stained suit she refused to change. I'll never forget how she was so clearly emotionally wounded yet so bravely carried on the duties of her position with such grace and dignity. Her strength in those moments was heartbreaking and awe inspiring at once.
