This whole Corona virus crisis (or WWIII as I call it) got me thinking. This is not the first time something huge rocks my boring, everyday life. I’m over a half-century old and when I look back I come to realize there has been some truly scary moments in my life that involved me and many other people around me. So I decided to make a list and hope to write about each one individually (in separate posts), with hopes of not boring you too much, dear reader.
- Arsenal (armory) Explosion in Barcarena, Portugal-November 1967
- Lisbon earthquake of 1969
- Carnation Revolution of 1975 (25 de Abril)
- September 11
- Covid 19, 2020
The first three were all in my native Portugal when I was still a young child (five, seven, and eleven respectively) but left vivid memories, which have followed me my whole life. So much so I have recently decided to research them and find out how much of what I remembered was factual and how much came out of the wild imagination of my child-self. The other two are no strangers to you, of course.
So I leave you today with a simple question; besides Covid-19 which pretty much has affected every single person on earth one way or another, which major event in the world has left long lasting and life-rocking memories in your life?
