ONE PICTURE CAN CHANGE
A PHOTOGRAPHER'S LIFE
Dan Farrell of Long Island, New York
(now 83 years old)
holds the historic photo he took
of John F. Kennedy, Jr.
saluting at his father's funeral.
This single photograph,
taken as the president's coffin
departed the funeral mass
near St. Matthew's Cathedral,
in Washington, D.C.
(3 days after the November 22 assassination)
brought Farrell international fame
and haunted him till this day.
Watching young JFK Jr. salute his father
was, says Farrell,
"the saddest thing I've ever seen
in my whole life."
(Today marks the 50th anniversary
of the tragic assassination of
our 35th U.S. President.)
