"Probably, when I was about nine or ten, my father took me to Dealey Plaza where Kennedy was shot. And he said, “Claire, a great man died here.” And I remember not fully comprehending the meaning of death yet. And I asked him how he died and he told me. And I remember feeling so sad, so angry. It seemed so unfair. I started to cry, and my daddy picked me up and he wrapped his arms around me and he said, “Don’t be sad, sweetheart. He made the world a better place, but sometimes that comes at a price.” I guess that was the most vivid memory."
