"We remember the smiling young couple, and a bunch of red roses; then- the monstrous act itself; and then- a flag-decked caisson, bowed heads, a lovely widow's moving gestures, a new President's resolute face, an assassin's ironic end and a little son's salute. Yet even these memories, like those of every previous national tragedy, would eventually fade into the dry pages of history, were it not for the camera's eye that recorded with immediacy and color the events of those 72 hours. And with this record, future generations shall also become privileged witnesses to the actual event, to be present and shaken and reawakened as we were. We have devoted this edition to the memory of John F. Kennedy so that in days to come men and women may open these pages before their children and say this is how it was."
