282. I was a junior in high school --
While it was shocking and upsetting at the time, I didn't realize the extent to which I had buried the pain of those three assassinations until the last two weeks before the election of Barack Obama. It would pop into my head and I would just start shaking and sobbing. I suppose my awareness of those tragedies were combined with the shame and horror of the past eight years, but I finally came to realize that these events are all of a piece. They are all connected, and have been a cancer in our government that has metastacized to the point of bringing our society to the brink of death.
