Judgment Day

        On November 22, 1963 John F Kennedy arrived in Dallas where he was to meet
with members of the states Democratic Party. He cruised through the streets of Dallas
getting applause's from everyone and all the citizens of Dallas. He was riding in an open
air (convertible) limousine. He was not riding alone but instead his wife Nellie and Texas
Governor John Connally. As they approached the Texas School Book Depository, John F
Kennedy would be waiting for his Judgment Day.

        John F. Kennedy was shot and murdered supposedly by Lee Harvey Oswald. So
many questions have been asked by people and other political figures that questions
whether or not the Kennedy assassination was a big conspiracy or if it was just one man,
Lee Harvey Oswald.

        A couple of theories have been thought up, some are so unbelievable that there is
no physical way that they could ever be accomplished.

        One of the more believable theories is the Magic Bullet Theory. The Magic Bullet
states that the bullet traveled through two separate individuals and emerged virtually
unscathed on the other side. One source says that "the bullet would have to had missed
all of the bones in President Kennedy's body while traveling through, passed through
Connallys wrist, shattering the extremely hard bones which compose it, and still have
enough speed to penetrate his thigh." The Magic Bullet Theory states that it is possible
for this to happen.

        The Magic Bullet also states that there was three shots that have been fired from
the assassin (Oswald) from the top of the building. "The first shot missed completely,
possibly grazing a spectator elsewhere along the parade path. The second shot is said to
have traversed the path known as The Magic Bullet Path. The third bullet is said to have
hit the President directly in the right side of his head, removing a portion of his skull and
brain, and causing his death." To me this sounds like this could be a really good theory
because it holds a lot of evidence that could be proven correct and perhaps the actual
answers to John F Kennedy's death.

        Some of the other sources say that the Magic Bullet holds no truth and that it is
not possible for a bullet to travel through so many...
