It is always interesting to hear what others were doing at a fixed moment in time. Perhaps a catastrophic event. Or an assassination. Or some other event that seemed to stop everyone in their tracks… Years later they still remember with great clarity.

We’ll start to list some – and I’ll tell you what I was doing at that time, starting with the most recent or the most memorable…

  • The 9/11 disasters with the Twin Towers (2001)
  • The assassination of President J.F.Kennedy (1963)
  • The Eruption of Mount Pinatubo (1991)
  • The People Power Revolution in Manila (1986)
  • The Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics
