So much is being said about the Kennedy assassination, but we should also consider the burden placed on Lyndon B. Johnson within a matter of minutes.

He wrote a book entitled, The Choices We Face, explaining how he had to forget his many years as a states-rights senator and realize that he must now run the nation, treating all states with the same respect and concern.

This short book provides a great insight into the mind of Johnson at this tragic time.

It’s worth reading as we approach Nov. 22 and the beginning of Lyndon Johnson’s presidency.
