The night started like a dream. We were all elated by the news and were enjoying the night out.
I was jerked back to the present as the action came to a halt. Before I could protest, the orchestra began to play “Hail to the Chief” and the actors all came out on stage.
I stood and watched transfixed as our victorious president appeared in the front box.
The play was good, but after the funniest line, a man dropped to the stage. I didn’t know Mr. Booth was in the play.
Only he wasn’t.
Thus began our national nightmare.
