I figured to post this here because it seems to be all over the news. I'd rather not make this thread political or personal and just have it be as a tribute and perhaps hear some stories from those who were alive as to what they were doing when they heard of the news.
I wasn't even close to being in existence at the time but my father, who lived in Colombia at the time, told me that he was in a movie theater watching a movie when someone came in and stopped it and announced what had happened. Everyone was stunned because for them that just couldn't happen to an American president. They also loved him down in Colombia and even have sections of Bogota named after him. He traveled there at one point during his presidency.
