Taken by Amateur Photographer Phil Willis - seconds before President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22nd 1963. I chose the photgraph because its one of the most historical events of recent times and I feel shows how sudden emotions can change from joy in this image to devastation just moments later. I think this image shows how loved President Kennedy was and the admiration many had for him.
