They announced it in school over the loudspeaker, and we couldn't believe it - the whole class just sat in silence, and for the first time I understood what stunned really means. This was in a pretty conservative Goldwater town, too. Our teacher broke down, and sobbed on her way out of the room, which was almost as bad as the announcement; all the girls in class began to cry, and a few boys, as well. Childhood's end, for a lot of us.
