1963 Background

What was the world like in 1963, the backdrop for this girl’s life? Likely she was oblivious to these events, but the same can’t be said for the adults who controlled her life. This helps puts her life in the context of bigger events going on in the world. Of course events of note are determined by me, likely in the context of what I personally find significant.
“Credibility gap” becomes evident between the truth and official reports of events in Cuba, Vietnam and elsewhere.
