Chicago officials are making plans to observe the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination.
The City Council on Wednesday passed a resolution calling for all city and state flags to be flown at half-staff on Friday, Nov. 22.

The resolution also urges churches to toll their bells and for a citywide moment of silence at 1 p.m. -- the time Kennedy was pronounced dead.
Kennedy was shot and killed Nov. 22, 1963 while traveling in a motorcade through Dallas' Dealey Plaza.
Accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was fatally shot two days later by nightclub owner Jack Ruby.
Alderman Ed Burke sponsored Chicago's resolution. He says the plans are "a fitting tribute" to Kennedy's legacy.
