Flashbulb memories are a quite interesting topic. We often forget moments in our past that take place on a daily routine but if something extraordinary or a tragic disaster takes place, it is hard to forget. That will always be a memory that is almost burned into our minds. For an example id use September 11, 2011. Everyone knows what happened that day and the tragic toll it took on our country. Many people remember what they were doing and where they were when they heard the news. But for most people, the days leading into it and the days after are hard to remember. For me personally, the following day was another meaningful day in my life. My birthday falls on September 12. With almost an imaginary audience thinking I’d walk into my house with everyone cheering and getting me excited for tomorrow being my birthday,but I walked into my house to find my dad and his coworkers sitting on the couch and watching the news. This tragedy was nearly 13 years ago, making me about 6 years of age on that birthday. I don’t remember many of my birthday’s up until quite recently because its an annual even that i have become so used to but the birthday of September 12, 2011 is a birthday I will never forget.
