Adrienne had This fun Meme and I wanted to do it.
It's a "what were you doing, and where" meme..
Here they are:
1. President Kennedy's Assassination - 22 November 1963.
I wasn't born yet for this one.
2. England's World Cup Semi Final v Germany - 4 July 1990
I was just engaged to Steve and didn't even know this was on.
3. Margaret Thatcher's resignation - 22 November 1990
I remember hearing it but it really didn't impact on my all that much. I didn't really get interested in politics.
4. Princess Diana's death - 31 August 1997
I remember this like it was yesterday. I was shocked beyond belief. I remember being glued to the TV that night and feeling very very sad for this women. My sister was living in London at the time and I remember speaking with her about it. Steve and I had 4 young children ranging in age from 5 to 3 months.
5. Attack on the twin towers - 11 September 2001
2001 was a year to remember in our house. It was the year Tom was diagnosed with diabetes and Amelia was born. We had moved to a new town. The morning it happened, Steve and I woke to a clock radio. with the news on. I said to Steve, did they just say that two planes have hit the WTC? He said, I think that is what they said. We didn't really think much more about it but that afternoon when I went to a prayer group they were praying specifically for the people that had been killed.
6. The election of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger to the papacy - 19 April 2005
It was school holidays and we had the computer on EWTN constantly. The day it was announced was great. I remember waiting and watching Raymond Arroyo and wondering if I would even know who the person was that the Cardinals had chosen. I was pretty ecstatic when it was announced.
