We parked on the street in front of the house and Jim told me to grab the ten-foot ladder. He retrieved the hidden key from the planter near the back door and marched upstairs舒I instinctively knew to follow. He pointed to a spot in the middle of the upstairs hall. I opened up the ladder on exactly that spot. He told me to climb up and open the air conditioning舗s intake grill.

And then she was locked in on the phone, as if my brother and I had disappeared. The adults couldn舗t get enough news. My dad came home, solemn, and the neighbors stopped by. They needed to tell each other it was going to be okay. I don舗t know how much I understood, but I felt the gravity of it. And now we had a new president. Lyndon Johnson. He talked funny.
