Just heard this on the news.  I remember watching Walter when he announced the death of JFK. I was in 6th grade. they gathered us in the auditorium to watch it. Shortly after he announced it, we were sent home from school.

When I think of him I think of the 1970's and Vietnam, and watergate.
I remember when he turned against the Vietnam war, and he took a lot of heat.

Indeed back in November of 1963 I was an impressionable 8 year old boy and like Ray I was in class, 3rd grade it was, and I believe we were also sent to the auditorium and then home...Everyone got their news from CBS, NBC and ABC and Walter Cronkite was king in those years...Unlike today when there are so many outlets to get the news, in those days we had just a relatively few sources and TV had overtaken radio in many ways because it was still such a novelty.

Basically the nation shut down that November for 5 days...It was surreal...The assassination, the whole Oswald coverage from Dallas, Jackie Kennedy and the children, JFK Jr. and Caroline and the whole family.  Then Jack Ruby murders Oswald and the entire nation is watching!!!  Unbelieveable stuff, the best writers couldn't make it up.

And Cronkite was there the whole time covering the scene and bringing it all into our homes, including this young boy growing up in the Bronx, New York City.

And I was also home that Sunday, when Oswald was shot live on TV !!

I can't remember who the announcer was, we were all sitting in the living room, and all I remember was someone on TV saying "he's been shot, he's been shot, Lee Harvey Oswald has been shot" !

I remember Cronkite from the mid-70s, when I was a child.  Wow, I can't believe its been that long.  Mr. Cronkite sure lived a good, long life.  May he rest in peace.

Walter came to represent the best of America and our culture. I associate the Space Program --America's Can Do period -- with him.  I think I watched every single Apollo launch and can remember after we landed on the moon, he had to wipe a tear from his eye.

Yes Robert...The moon landing was such an incredible time to be a teenager.  I was at summer camp in Port Jervis, NY that year of 1969, just about 40 years ago today when that extraordinary occurence that literally changed our world was also announced by Cronkite.

The Democratic national primary riots in Chicago and so many other happenings in what was arguably the most interesting decade in our nations history, certainly in the 20th century, and he was there for them all to bring them into our homes or wherever we were watching.

His comments that America should withdraw from Vietnam were widely thought to be instumental in our nations decision to eventually give up that quagmire that could not end militarily but only honorably and it took guts for him to get on the air and say it to America.  Nixon's resignation, the Iranian hostage crisis and so many other big news stories were delivered to us by this man.

His passing brings back so many memories.

And that's the way it was.
