24. When I was 11 my family went to visit our relatives who lived ..

I think they lived in Arlington at the time.
Now this was 1964. We (thinking back like wow, it made sense that my parents wanted to pay their respects) visited JFK'S original White Picket Fence grave.

Decades later I went to see the redone bigger and beautifully designed grave/memorial for JFK. And out of corner of my eye I caught a glimpse of the White Cross of RFK's grave. I went to visit that as well. I was 15 in '68, and that one truly shook me. They also had a quote or two that he used in a low wall opposite the cross.
Both so poignant...
