It says a lot about our society that we have an almost minute by minute account of what happened after Oswald fired that gun, but in school I at least never learned anything about Jackie’s resilience in the days that followed

If you tried to teach every little nuance and fact about each individual moments of history the books would reach the moon and back a million times over. At best a teacher opens a glimmer of what happened, and if the teacher is good they wet your appetite for more. Then it's up to us to follow-up. Thus videos like this. You never have to stop learning.
Cynic seeks similar for disappointment.

I was 16, but never knew until 10 years ago how awful it was in that car. I saw a video on PBS that actually showed the moment the bullets hit from a ompletely different and extremely graphic angle!. I did not know it was as gruesome until then. The first could have killed him because of his airway being destroyed, but there was a chance, but the second, he had no chance left. I knew then about half of the conspiracy theories were wrong. He was gone right then. I don't know how Jackie ever could go on the rest of the day and her life. And still recovering from the loss of their baby, too. I remember that, too. It had to be her faith. Wow, so incredible! I have faith and have been through a lot of trauma, but nothing close to that day in Dallas. Grateful for her example.

@HollowedJes Hillary has had some horrid blows. Though totally humiliated by her unfaithful husband in front of the world, for the sake of her family and nation, chose what she did. I think she did the right thing, but at a price. The lies about her, enlarged by one of the most evil men born, was equally humiliating. But she has remained strong and dignified in public. I do not know privately. It was all so deeply wounding, and i cannot imagine trying to recover from it all without scars. Jackie was also publicaly humiliated by Jack's affairs and scarred by public opinion in every part of her life, too, yet both women remained remarkably heroic.

@Gerry S.S I’m not going to say either of us is right or wrong but offering a different perspective on true love just as you offered yours. Let’s not hold others to our perspectives. From my understanding-to you, true love is never falling in love again. But let’s not say someone never really loved someone if they remarried because that’s what you believe. Because Jackie nor JFK were your partner. And neither of us intimately knew their relationship.
Melody Collins
Melody Collins 5 gün önce
@Gerry S.S you also can’t control love or the void some may feel in losing a partner. I would hate to be angry with my partner for finding love again and being HAPPY. There is no one relationship type that fits the definition of “true love” to me. It’s what’s healthy, honest and happy between couples-and those things aren’t exclusive to just one person. There’s probably many on this earth that one can “click” with. Even if they’re all similar personalities. My partner loving another after losing me doesn’t mean they never loved me. Doesn’t mean our love wasn’t true. It was true to us and died with me, but lives on in memory. And they can find love again, another “true love” to light their fires with, share their stories, their laughter and bed with.
Melody Collins
Melody Collins 5 gün önce
@Gerry S.S I’m sorry but that is your definition of true love. Of course this is just my definition: Should I die, I want my partner to find someone else, to find a companion that they fall in love with just as they fell in love with me. I would never expect nor want my partner to live the rest of their life alone because they’re being “faithful” to me. I’m dead, I’m gone. That doesn’t mean our love never existed. In fact, it would still exist in memory. I’d of course hope they’d miss me, but I wouldn’t want them to die with me or deny them a partner to share their bed, share a warm embrace, children or just love in general. Especially if I die young and they have a whole life ahead of them to spend, alone. Because I love my partner. That is true love to me just as expecting your partner to never remarry or have another love is to you. If my partner chose to live alone after losing me, I’d feel sad but accept that as their choice. I wouldn’t be happy-unless of course they are truly happy alone. But that isn’t always the case. You can have friends sure, but a friend and lover can be something different. It’s not as if they’re consciously thinking of who they’ll love next after you. They love you, but it’s a discussion of “when I go, please find someone else.” Because life can get lonely when you don’t have partner in life.

@Gerry S.S My marriage vows say "till death do us part". Pretty sure if something happened to Jackie, JFK would have remarried. As most people do when their spouse dies. My great-grandmother was widowed, married a widower, and they had 3 more kids in addition to her 7. If you're young, why be lonely until your turn to go?

I recently lost my son. The costs at the funeral home were revolting. The cost to have my son transported from the neighboring city he was found in, closer to home, permits etc, added insult to injury. There’s little empathy and compassion for the mourning. A prime opportunity to prey on the vulnerable and add emotional stress for the lack of financials for the proper burial, cremation and resting place. It’s inhumane.

I too lost my oldest son 5 days before Christmas 2021. I felt like I was dealing with a used car salesman. He didn't even do half of the things I asked like 2 boxes for his ashes I understood that I had to pay extra for them, I got them in a cardboard box, he, I guess, decided that I didn't have the money. They messed up his service handouts, put the verse he originally suggested in the "used car sale" instead of the one I picked. My sister lost her mind on that man, I barely had the ability to put one foot in front of the other that week. It was the most awful thing ever. I am so sorry for your loss and experience.

I remember when my stepfather died. My brother, who was his biological child, was distraught. The funeral director asked if he wanted 'casket insurance' . He was ready to say 'yes' to anything. I quickly asked "what is casket insurance'? I was told it was insurance paid so that the casket would not leak, the remains leak out, etc. I asked how we could make sure the insurance was working .....did they dig up the casket every month/year etc to make sure it was working appropriately? Of course the funeral director , goggled eyed, fumbled his answer and finally said 'no'. I said , 'then no, we don't need the added charge of 'casket insurance'. Not cool. Obviously a tactic to prey on the emotional situation that is the loss of a loved one.

My uncle was the first child ever with a complex heart disease in the 60's (Now they can literally do a simple surgery and after a few days the kids can go home). He died at age 3. Scientists asked my grandparents to keep his body to experiment on to see what exactly was the issue, but as extreme Christians, they didn't want that. In a weird coincidence, the mortuary was filled so the casket with my 'uncle' in it had to stay in their house for days until the funeral. However they said 'NEVER OPEN THE CASKET, NO MATTER WHAT'! Everyone complyed..except for my 6 year old mum. She finally got the casket open after a few days and found..rocks. There was no body whatsoever. So the hospital stole my uncle's body. My grandparents never knew but had a hunch. So even though this means my uncle probably helped thousands of people with his autopsy, it's disgusting they did this behind my grandparents back.

I was six years old when President Kennedy was shot. My parents were watching the live news broadcast (I think it was live), and my sister and I were playing with our toys in our bedroom when we heard our mother scream. We ran out to see what happened, but our father told us to get back in our room. But we could hear our mother sobbing, and our father trying to comfort her. It’s still one of the most vivid memories from my childhood.

@Cece K. It would be better to have followed God than to try and follow a dream. God is the one who frees a man, but dreams never freed anyone. Martin Luther King had a dream but it cost him his life. The same is still happening today. People are still having dreams they are following and it is costing them their life. So love God with all your heart and He will free you and give you peace and joy you couldn't imagine possible. God is Awesome!! ❤️🙏

Poor Jackie. Also… I remember my mom and grandma talking about the completely raw & visceral reactions people had to this event, and I just don’t know if that type of reaction would be seen after a comparable event in this day and age. People have lost this type of faith in and respect of their representative government. People having very visible, public, emotional outbursts was truly a testament to the hope and inspiration the Kennedys inspired in droves of the American people. This period in American history is always fascinating to me. Thank you for touching on these subjects. More people should pay attention to history lessons like this.

If you watch the movies of his murder and Jackie climbs onto the trunk of the car and reaches for something, it's the Presidents skull that she grabbed. People were saying that she was trying to get away from the car and the Secret Service agent climbs up and helped her get back into the car, they were wrong. She loved him with all of her life and soul, and she was not going to leave him. 💔

@Tyra Starr The force of the bullet had about half his skull rip off as well as his brain splatter everywhere. And since head wounds bleed a lot, the blood spattered everywhere. It was very grotesque. There are photos you can search for online to understand the gravity of his injuries.

I have a problem with hermetically sealed caskets. My grandmother died when I was in 8th grade and I was with my mother when we had to pick out the casket. I remember having to ask what hermetically meant. Despite being only 13 years old, I knew what decomposition was having lived on a farm, and I knew that a certain amount of oxygen was needed for a body to decompose. To top it off, my grandmother was buried in Chicago IL and her casket had to be placed inside of a 6 inch thick cement sarcophagus that had a lid on it which I think was done to protect ground water. Anyway, It made me so uncomfortable to think about because I knew that my grandmothers body would never become one with the earth again. It was this reason why I decided that I wanted to be cremated. But now that I have learned about the process of corpse composting, I would really like that as my disposition. I hope that by the time I die it is legal here in Wisconsin. If not I would consider tree burial.

DONT LIE! AT OVAL OFFICE Johnson and Valenti stand beside the presidential desk, both careful not to step behind it. Johnson to Valenti whadda we do? Valenti to Johnson I’ve been discussing it with the others all morning. We all agree for the sake of continuity, it’s important we move in immediately. Johnson to Valenti It’s his goddamn desk Jack his corpse is lying in the next room! Valenti to Johnson I understand, sir. It’s delicate. But this is the President’s office. And you’re the President. Don’t think Kruschev isn’t watching. Johnson to Valenti That whole Mick crew is gonna throw a fit. Valenti to Johnson We’ll handle O’Brien and the rest. Johnson to Valenti We gotta be careful about Jackie. Real careful. Those other sonsofbitches know the drill. But she’s just a girl. A sweet girl with two kids who just lost her husband. She’s the most beloved woman in the world right now. Valenti to Johnson I understand. Johnson to Valenti Well, do what you gotta do to get started. But we work across the street until after the body’s in the ground. NIGHT OF THE FUNERAL Jackie to Bobby Jack’s gone. He’s gone! And I can’t stay in that goddamn house another minute! THE DAY AFTER FUNERAL JACKIE AT OVAL OFFICE is hardly recognizable. The scarlet carpet remains, but little else. All the furniture has been replaced, and President Johnson sits behind his new desk. Jackie to Johnson I’ve just come to tell you, that the children and I plan to move out immediately. I can’t stand to be here a moment longer. We leave for the Cape tonight. They left the night after JFK funeral not the two months like you said. And Johnson and his Mob did things very quickly. The mass media and videos on TRvid like this one make a lot of none sense enough already. People are too lazy to do their own research when is the last time you seen them read a book.

Those who didn't have rides carpooled with friends. You were lucky to have such a considerate father. One of the things I remember about that day was all of the girls walking down the halls crying. At 71 years old, I can't remember a sadder day in America, except when JFK junior's plane went missing.

I absolutely understand and support the Kennedy family wanting the casket closed. My cousin and his wife were killed in a terrible automobile accident in the early 1970s. My aunt and uncle (old school Catholic and a bit odd) opted for a traditional open casket funeral. It was awful. My cousin's wife was a beautiful woman who looked stunning in fuchsia and was buried in one of her favourite dresses. It clashed horribly with the funeral home makeup. Their bodies were still slightly distorted from the accident and they looked nothing like the vibrant couple we knew. I think that's when my parents decided on cremation.

I was 10 when JFK was assassinated. My strongest memories of that weekend are seeing our school principal crying after he lowered the flag. It was the first time I saw a man cry. The second image was of all the limousines arriving at the White House on Saturday. It was raining, and the raindrops distorted further the already distorted images of the camera's telephoto lens, which made the limos elongate and bend going up the drive. The final image of that weekend was the murder of Oswald.

Interesting fact, Jackie's suit was Chanel "inspired" suit made by her personal tailor. She loved Chanel designs but she wanted to be seen wearing clothing from the US, so her tailor got the fabric and pattern from Chanel but it was made in the US. Edit: Thank you for all the likes, and commentary. Additionally, this was in no way to say Caitlin was incorrect as the suit outside of the person and place it was constructed was Chanel.

There was a recent Apollo exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum and they had personal letters from NASA to Jackie after his death. I stood there and cried as I read them. The grace to which Jackie responded was unfathomable. Her only request of them was that in the future they would speak of him and his passion for space exploration so his memory could be kept alive and he would not be forgotten. I know much is made of their marriage and his affairs, but there is no question of her love and dedication for this man.

"They have to remember Jack alive." Has just.. I don't know. It's struck me hard. I'm severely ill, and only getting sicker. I remember waking up to my mum on the phone, saying how she's having to bury her parents, and she knows one day she'll have to bury me, her child, too. I thought I had everything thought out, in terms of my end of life wishes. But now I just.. don't know. A big, lavish ceremony isn't something I'm into, but if that's what my loved ones need, well, I'm not the one feeling the grief. When it comes to ceremony, and how my loved ones do it, all I'd ask is that they try to focus on the times we shared over my life, and not so much on my death.

In the UK it’s traditional to have a closed casket services when loved ones leave us. My stepfathers funeral was the first time at a funeral I’d ever had the opportunity to have a private moment as we were leaving, to reach out to have that moment of reconnection with, giving thanks, and mourning with someone I loved more than my birth father for most of my adult life. JFK’s life and death has been the subject of satire, and virtually nothing had been said about Jackie. Thank you for bringing her truth to light.

the treatment jackie received from both the public and the kennedy family after her husbands death was abhorrent. bobby was the only one who was kind to her and he was murdered the same way as his brother not long after. she lived with severe PTSD for the rest of her life and never recovered from it. i rarely see anyone talk about her after his death, so i really appreciate this video. EDIT: Barbara Leamimg wrote a fantastic biography about Jackie for anyone who’d like to know more!

@Highway Hanna do you know what the word “triggered” means? Because it’s used in therapy to describe what happens when a person with PTSD or similar disorders experiences a flashback, by mocking it you are mocking every single individual who has ever experienced one. A car backfiring is a seemingly trivial and simple thing, but someone with PTSD from war or even Jackie herself would likely be triggered by it and it could tear them apart. You don’t know the significance a word or a circumstance has to a person and their trauma. A car backfiring that sounds like a gunshot, the trashy pop song that played while you were being assaulted, the name your abusive partner would call you before beating you, the curtains hanging when you found your loved one dead as a child, all of these can be triggers and just because they seem stupid and insignificant to you doesn’t make them so. People have always suffered these reactions and disorders, the only change is that many are actually willing to listen to us when we talk about them rather than all responding how you have, and it actually gives us the chance to grow and heal. Society has more compassion for people like Jackie, people like me, people with trauma that can resurface at any given moment for any seemingly insignificant reason, and if you don’t have compassion for us then you don’t have compassion for her. You don’t get to pick and choose who is allowed to be “triggered”

@slugluv1313 not really the same thing, but the closest I can come to as a millennial is 9/11. I was 9 when it happened and I’ll never forget that day. Our teacher put the TV on after the first plane hit, so me and my classmates watched the towers fall. They sent us home early, and I remember panicking because my mom worked in downtown Pittsburgh and she took the bus that day, and she said that streets were frenzied with people rushing to make it home, especially after the third plane crashed in PA. That whole era of the early 2000s was just overcast with worry and doubt. I really wish the generations would get along more, specifically Boomers and my generation, along with Gen Z. We share a lot, living through unprecedented events, racial turmoil on the national level, losses from war, living with diseases not fully understood-we have a collective trauma from these events that will takes years, maybe decades to heal from, and it would be better if we could heal together. ❤️

very thorough, very interesting and very sensitivly told, this story that is a part of everyone's life. When my ex partner passed away, I requested a very simple box and not alot of money be spent. They did what I asked and I am at peace with how he was laid to rest. He was not embalmed. They kept him on ice so me and the family could have a private open casket viewing. I think open viewing is OK for the family but only for those who want it, I dont think it should be forced on anyone.

Interesting and well done. I was twelve at this time, at the age where one starts to become aware of the larger forces of the world. This brought back elements which had been forgotten and also flashbacks about the ghastly funeral for my paternal grandmother less than a year before. The movie "The Loved One" had Jonathan Winters wearing the same style suit as my father had and Liberace perfectly portraying the smooth sales presentation that I had observed as an eleven year old non-Irish Catholic amongst the Protestant world. A lot of context long forgotten. And so much grief ... Prayers.

Jackie Kennedy will always be such a wonderful embodiment of strength and power. I didn't realize that she had a baby that died and that the baby died not long before her husband died. I did watch a documentary on the assassination from her view, and as a child, I always thought she was scared and trying to flee the car when he was shot but as an adult, I heard her say that a piece of his skull flew back onto the boot of the car and she crawled on the back of the car purely to grab it and place it back on his head. My heart just swelled and realized what Love and bravery she possessed. She was an amazing woman and thankyou for telling us this story, I did know she insisted on staying by his side but didn't know all these amazing details

Just incredible, kudos Jackie! Also, is it possible that the charges from the Dallas funeral home were so high because they might have damaged the hearse's locking mechanism as well as the casket?

When you're in that kind of situation, habits tend to kick in. For a woman who was very used to being in the public's eye and paying attention to what the ppl around her need/expect, leaning into that kind of thing would be a reflex and also a way to keep herself from dwelling on what's going on. In that sort of situation, it can be easy to feel very detached from what ppl expect you to feel or do. It hasn't quite sunk in, you know? And yeah, I imagine the costs to repair the hearse probably played a role in the size of the bill. I'm very glad they decided to destroy the casket. That kind of thing absolutely should _not_ end up in the hands of collectors, nor should it be used as some kind of... shrine.

I wasn't alive yet when JFK was assassinated but I've researched his life because of everything my father told me about what he thought and felt about JFK and my father wasn't a huge fan of the US government but he loved JFK because he felt that he wanted to change the direction of the country and where it was leading to (and did not only end up but blew past) he was a very interesting man and I will never believe that he wasn't murdered by the very government he was trying to change.... I will just never be convinced of that.... and Jackie...what a absolute picture of what not only a first lady should be but a wife should be.... and I can say unfortunately that when you have just seen someone who you love get shot and you were right next to them...your in such shock you dont feel think or even realize that you have a huge amount of blood all over you .... untill you catch a look at yourself in a mirror and then (with me anyway) it all hits you again like a ton of bricks.... crazy experience that I wish on nobody ever...

As an adult, I have paid for creations, still very high. But, not as much as a full burial. In 1963, when the President was assassinated, the oldest kids at our school were watching the 📺 motorcade. I was just 1 month of being 6, a first grader. I attended a Catholic school. It was the only day I saw Nuns running and crying. A fear of attacks on Catholic seemed real. It was horrible. I remember the funeral. I remember praying for the Country, the Kennedy family, and the Johnsons. We did not celebrate Thanksgiving that year.

I don’t want to be remembered as a waxen effigy of the person I was. Awesome video, by the way, but I can’t get over the fact that the transportation casket was solid bronze.

As a California licensed embalmer, and funeral director of now some 43 years I applaud the presentations and narrative of this historic event. Having been to Deeley Plaza, and to Arlington National Cemetery I consider myself fortunate to have been able to spend some reflective moments at both locations. I would love to be able to sit with the commentator of this presentation and respectfully discuss the narratives of the funeral industry, and the what, who, when and why of what I have devoted my entire professional life. I so respect the opinions of others and am more interested in her point of view and reasoning then mine. This is so nicely done and would share this with others.

@Peter K yup jeeze from the start she got it wrong about the "lone nut did it". ONeal said the back of his head was blasted out! why doesn't she quote him about that? and why show the drawings of the head wound and not any of the photos (some doctored) that have been out for decades?? the throat and head hits came from the south knoll parking lot. yes shots from all over including the north or grassy knoll. trvid.com/video/video-c8emNECYgmg.html

@Not A fascist Slave V Nope, a realist. That's only part of the horror of the assassination. The worst happened afterward. Since the blood and guts aspect is your focus, you don't see that.

I would highly recommend going to Dayton Ohio to see the Air Force One jet that carried Kennedy. Its housed in the air force museum which is an amazing museum even without that amazing aircraft.
