Your Birth Date

(from weathermanphil)

Visit the Wikipedia website and perform a search for your birth date without the year. Then post in your journal 3 interesting events, 2 births, and 1 death that occurred on your birth date. Here are the ones I chose:

September 11

Events
(these are eerily related)
1. 1609 - Henry Hudson lands on Manhattan island.
2. 1941 - Ground broken for the construction of The Pentagon.
3. 2001 - The September 11 attacks destroy the World Trade Center in New York City, part of The Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and crash a passenger airliner in Pennsylvania. In total, almost 3,000 are killed.

Births
1. 1885 - D.H. Lawrence, English novelist (d. 1930)
2. 1967 - Harry Connick, Jr., American singer

Deaths
(besides all those who lost their lives on 9/11/2001)
1. 1987 - Lorne Greene, Canadian actor (b. 1915)

I didn't even know about this until I looked at the list of events for my birthday. It is weeeeird...Do you think the planners of 9/11 chose this date because of the earlier events? That is so chilling.

I don't think the terrorists chose 9/11 because of the earlier events. Their intent was to take Americans by shock, and so they chose an arbritrary date when it would be least expected.
