40 YEARS AGO


If you were already born, do you remember what you were doing on this date 40 years ago?

I was in 4th class at St Peter and Paul's School, Garran, ACT. It was winter. We all packed into the school library (a room about the size of a double classroom) to watch the arrival on the moon.

Even as a 9 year old, I understood the enoormity of the event. Wow! The American nuns who ran the school were so proud. Little did I realise, what my future held. Gosh, I wasn't even aware of what was going to happen the next day in ways of future events back in 1969. Not that I can remember what I did the next day now - except that it was Tuesday, 22nd July and the feast of St Mary Magdalen - one of the three super special days of my year, back then.
