Kennedy made a campaign stop in downtown Bowling Green.<br /><br />“We were in front of his car, so when I got through with the parade I grabbed my camera and ran back up the street so I could get a good picture of him, which I did,” said Givens.&nbsp; “After that, we just disbanded, got on the buses and went back to Morgantown at that time.”</p><p>Givens captured a picture of the future president, riding in a red car with a Kennedy/Johnson sign strapped to the side.<br /><br />“I was 18 years old and politics and all that didn’t register a whole lot.&nbsp; But I knew it was a big event because the streets were packed up one side and down the other,” said Givens.<br /> Fri, 22 Nov 2013 02:45:46 +0000 Emil Moffatt 40231 at http://wkyufm.org Kentuckians Share Memories of Kennedy Visit, 1963 Assassination
