August 31st brings back memories

31 Aug

Today you can find a fun and informative slide show on ClickOrlando.com. It’s all about things that happened on this day, August 31.

As you prepare to make your own memories this Labor Day weekend, take a second to reflect on some history.

I found the most notable events to be the 15th anniversary of Princess Di’s death, the release of Michael Jackson’s “Bad” album and the devastating earthquake in Charleston.

 The memories of waking up to see the local newspaper plastered with the headline about Diana’s death is still fresh to me. I was a senior in high school at the time. I remember standing in the kitchen with my mom and reading the article in shock and denial.

The “Bad” album was so coveted when it came out that my mother stood in line at the local record store just to get me a cassette copy! Ha, time flies!

Take a look at this day in history to see what you remember. Go on, take a look here.

Have a great Labor Day!

See you in the morning,

Bridgett
