A moment in history
Closed

We had a family barbeque this afternoon, which, eventually, ended up inside.

Once the 'party' side had finished, the general topic turned to 'historic' events that people remembered, or had an emotional impact on them.

The Erebus crash, Elvis dying, the moon landing, seeing the Beatles in concert and the Christchurch earthquake being just a few of them.

What moments in history do you remember the most, or have had some sort of emotional impact on you?

Oh and Princess Diana and her tragic end. Gut-wrenching at the time. 1997. It was not expected as she was TOO young and her poor kids, she was trying to give them a semi-normal life!
Her funeral rivalled her wedding. The Netflix documentary 'In Her Own Words' doesn't tell it all but is close. The book was better.

9-11 is the main one I've been alive for. Just reading a book about it. Did you know there were a lot of miracles around that event? People having dreams the same morning, plane ticket changes, feeling like the loved one was there after they died...? Amazing and incredibly sad moment in modern time.

The Canterbury earthquakes (I have lived in Christchurch my entire life thus far), and 911 stand out for me.

All of yours J4564482k, aside from seeing the Beatles (live) in concert and yours too, farside1 aside from the Sprott House fire (but I've read an excellent book about it!) Biggest impact would probably be the Wahine storm (we didn't know about the sinking for a while) because I was living in Palm Nth and it was huge even there. Also Elvis; I was a young mum working away in the kitchen that day with the radio on and it was such a shock! Then they said the report was incorrect, and I breathed a sigh of relief; followed about 30 mins later by another report confirming his death.

all of those listed, plus, the Wahine sinking, the Sprott House fire, and JFK's assassination.
