Throwback Thursdays - President Reagan Shot in D.C.
It's been 35 years since President Reagan was leaving the Washington Hilton Hotel on March 30, 1981 and John Hinckley shot him and 3 others. President Reagan was rushed to the hospital and underwent surgery. You can read the news story here. Thankfully he had a complete recovery.
James Brady, White House Press Secretary was also shot and was in critical condition. His injures were life altering and resulted in paralysis. He died in 2014. Two law enforcement officer were also shot but recovered.
The hotel has a plaque on the rock wall close to where the shooting occurred and under it is a beautiful rose and flower garden. This is the hotel where I stayed on my recent trip to D.C. It brought back memories seeing this area and remembering the news accounts of the shootings so many years ago. It made me think of President Kennedy's assassination and I was so glad it didn't end in fatalities.
