I was talking to a friend about specific cultural and historical events that we remember. Do you remember where you were when any of the following occurred?
- When Michael Jackson died (2009)
- When Princess Diana died (1997)
- When you first found out about the 9/11 attacks (2001)
- When Osama Bin Laden was killed (2011)
When the first plane hit the World Trade Center, I was living in Manhattan and got a call from my parents overseas. I turned on the news, and then looked out the window. A thick cloud of smoke hung over Lower Manhattan. I will never forget it.
Do you remember where you were when any of the above occurred? Are there any other major historical or cultural events seared into your memory?
