There comes a time in everyone's life when it's possible to recall exactly where you were and what you were doing on a given day of extraordinary events.
Other than personal stuff like births and deaths, the two that come to mind for me are the day John Kennedy was assassinated and Sept. 11, 2001.
But for older folks--even older than me--like those I visit at an assisted living facility, one of those days is most certainly the bombing of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.
I remember my parents telling me about it numerous times to the point where even though it was a little over a year before my birth I remember what they were doing.
It was a Sunday morning and they were sitting around the kitchen table. In our family the kitchen was a common gathering place.
They were listening to the radio and reading the Sunday morning paper when the announcement came over announcing the attack.
There of course was no TV so news was spread via radio and newspaper.
The rest, as they say, is history.
What are some important days you remember?
