By Marice Richter DALLAS (Reuters) - For 50 years, visitors from around the world have wandered across the grassy areas of Dealey Plaza, snapping photos and pointing up at the sixth-floor window of the building where Lee Harvey Oswald fired the shots that killed President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. But for the people who call Dallas home, Dealey Plaza was long associated with heartache and shame. Only 5,000 people will be able to view it in Dealey Plaza, but video screens will be set up throughout downtown. City leaders have said they want to show that Dallas acknowledges its role in the tragedy and is eager to honor the life and legacy of JFK.
