“The Dream… always… whenever I sleep… the dream… shouts become whispers; shots, concussions of air; the crowd a distant, rushing whistle… sirens fading away… all as if under water in a pool of memories — muffled, indistinct, blending together and becoming images that move in agonizingly slow motion… humming and whispering and haunting every moment of sleep. The dream… always… ”
Abraham Zapruder, speaking of his own reaction to the 8 mm moving film he made in Dealey Plaza; Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.
