We Were There, narrated in respectfully subdued tones by Robin Bloodworth, is a gripping firsthand account from the Dallas doctors and Parkland Memorial Hospital staff who frantically administered treatment to the President as he lay dying of his gunshot wounds. Two days later, Lee Harvey Oswald would also die at the same hospital.
A truly compelling and often chilling insider listen from that forever unforgettable day 50 years ago.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Yes, I would redact the opinions of the author about "conspiracy theorists" as being deviants in a society which purports to honor the truth. Most people I know and respect consider conspiracy theories as a result of lie detection efforts. The book had an undercurrent of condemnation of the inquisitive people, who seek the truth.
What was most disappointing about Allen Childs MD’s story?
See the above. This book is one where listening is surely much easier than reading because it allows the imagination to go to work better (for me at least (than the written page could ever do).
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Good voice and inflection. Other than that- - -nothing worthy of comment.
Do you think We Were There needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No- - - It was a collection of sentiments from people proximate to the crime of the 20th century. There are dozens of clips on the media of doctors at Parkland, who go deep into the mechanics of the wounds and bring far more clarity around what was seen.
Any additional comments?
The constant referral to "The Sixth Floor Museum" is a disservice to the readers because it is widely known among dedicated researchers that the, recently-deceased curator, Gary Mack, caused (or aided in causing) the shrine to our slain president to become a propaganda vehicle for the support of the deeply flawed, if not criminal, Warren Commission. The book store at the Sixth Floor Museum is stocked only with books which support the prevarications of the W.C. There are several physicians, who have come forth and bombarded the Warren Commission and the way it twisted the physicians' words to mean other than what they intended. If a person wants to float down a river of sentimental recollections and let the untrue and the truth swirl together in eddies–this is a good book. Otherwise, it is marginal as an investment of time.

Great narration. Fascinating to me to hear medical staff reactions and their take on the events b/c I am an RN and a huge JFK buff.
