BEING PART OF HISTORY.... IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on November 8, 2016 at 10:47:17 AM by JOHN WILBORN
On November 8, 1960, Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts defeated Vice President Richard M. Nixon for the presidency.
A decade or more ago, I wrote a story that I had titled THE PLEDGE...A promise in the form of a pledge as to the secrecy of meeting travelers who seemed to be traveling, incognito, for whatever purpose...That pledge was maintained and kept for 40 years...then I decided to share the event with a story.. It was sometime during that same year mentioned above that Glenn Sherwood and I, when traveling by ferry from Davisville to Newport Rhode Island, met these 2 travelers...We pledged that we would not share the event with anyone...I never did and when I called to visit with Glenn if he had kept the pledge, his wife told me he had passed away 9 years earlier...
Perhaps you are familiar with those events from the story I finally wrote.JW Replies: There have been no replies.
