Throwback Thursday Ideas: A New Concept

Similar to what I do for the word of the week, I’m going to write another kind of post. I’ve thought about throwback Thursday ideas, and I figured I do a weekly post every Thursday. I’ll list some events that took place on that past date and reflect on the history over time. It’ll be a nice new topic along with the word of the week. This post will be the first of many throwback Thursdays.

Well, those were quite a few notable events that took place. I myself was around for most of them, and it’s good to keep those in mind. Especially during the Cold War, I was born in the last few months of that war. But the end of that event was a significant time in world history. It still is recalled by many people who were around the last few years of the former Soviet Union.

What do you think of all of these past events? Were you around when they took place? What are some of your favorite memories?
