ATLANTA -- It is the most repeated question of the week. "Where were you when JFK died?"
For those old enough to remember November 22, 1963, it is easily answered.
Governor Carl Sanders has never forgotten that day or the night.
As Georgia's 74th governor, he was JFK's friend, and a political ally. And he too was being threatened by a would-be assassin because of his connection to the president.
"President Kennedy was a good friend of mine and a good friend to the state of Georgia," said Sanders.
Hanging on the wall in his Atlanta office of Troutman Sanders, two pictures of the then 37 year old Georgia governor and the 44 year old president from November of 1962. Both men were young, handsome, stylish leaders who served bravely in WWII.
Their friendship was immediate.
"Every time I asked him to give us some help he responded positively."
