Thirty Years Ago Today

Wow, I remember when it happened. My mom and grandmother Bera and I were planning a trip to Memphis to do some back-to-school shopping and we decided to drive by Graceland. The number of people there was unbelievable. It took thirty minutes to drive past Graceland and there were police directing traffic and people crying all over the place. It was amazing.

I remember too! I was a senior in high school and my friend Renee was crying. Everyone was in shock. I didn't really appreciate Elvis until some years later, but damn, he really was the King.
