Where were you when…


Barbara Marriott, a SaddleBrooke author

If you are over fifty, you are a walking encyclopedia of historic events. Author Barbara Marriott wants to publish your personal memories and remembrances of historical events during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in a book titled Where Were You When. So much has happened and so quickly in the past hundred years. Where were you when World War II broke out, on D-Day, when the World Trade Center blew up and many, many other significant events including the introduction of information and communication technology? Did you participate? Were you a bystander? How did the event affect you? What were your feelings or thoughts at the time? Send your stories to Bbarb3@aol.com. Check out her writing history at barbaramarriott.com. Here are some events, but feel free to write about other significant historical events letting people know where you were, what you were doing and what you remember when:

The Great Depression; World War II; Pearl Harbor; D-Day; V-Day; The testing and/or the dropping of the atomic bomb; The Holocaust; Decolonization of the British Empire; The Berlin Wall; Korea; Vietnam; Afghanistan; Cuban Missile Crisis.

Feel free to add your own significant historical event.
