TAYLORS, S.C. (BP) —It has been 50 years since that tragic day in Dallas when bullets from an assassin ended the life of the nation’s 35th President John F. Kennedy. His death remains one of the darkest moments in the nation’s history. All who were old enough at the time still remember where they were when they heard the news in 1963. But as we pass the 50-year mark of this tragedy, the nation also recognizes another famous figure of the 20th century — Billy Graham, who recently celebrated his 95th birthday. You already know these two men among the biggest historical figures of recent times, but what you may not know is their close association and a certain “irrecoverable moment” they shared before Kennedy’s death.
