what does "tenuous semblance of form began to emerge"mean? Kilduff’s press conference ended the most tempestuous hour in the history of American journalism. It was only the first hour in what was to become the greatest simultaneous experience this nation or any other had ever shared, but once the people knew that the President had been murdered a tenuous semblance of form began to emerge. Over the weekend it was to grow and grow until the President's widow, by her gallant devotion, restored the country's sense of pride and majesty at Monday's state funeral.

I think the author means that after the initial chaos and uncertainty, the country became more unified in its reaction to the events.
