Nineteen years ago today...
The massacre at Columbine.
Of course I had to do a post to gather people's memories and emotions of that day.

https://emotionalmemoriesofhistory.com/…/columbine-high-sc…/

But in writing the post, I had another issue arise...
How do I decide which shootings to include? All that killed more than X number of people? All that were somehow...significant to a large population? Should I compare how horrific each was?

In addition to the Columbine post, I have a discussion question. I would appreciate it if you would comment on both.

Please please please... comment on the BLOG POST at the link, NOT on THIS G+ post. This is an important project to me, not just because I will be graded on it at the end of the semester, but also because I believe it can make a positive contribution to humanity's personal recollections and recordings of history.

PLEASE TEST FOR ME!

If you go to https://emotionalmemoriesofhistory.com/…/the-assassination…/ you should be able to see the MLK post then page through to see a post about Doctor Who, then Columbine, then a Discussion Question and that is ALL.

You should NOT be able to see this test post https://emotionalmemoriesofhistory.com/catego…/project-post/ unless you click on that link.

Did it work? Do you NOT see the test post when casually browsing? CAN you see it if you click on the link?

Please Give Me Your Memories!

For my class in digital history at UCCS I have created a website called Emotional Memories of History that strives to create micro-primary sources in the form of individual people's memories or feelings around various historic events or developments.

This post is about Doctor Who. Please go to the website and leave your thoughts on the post!

I have disabled comments on this post because so many people tend to put their comments HERE instead of on the project site. The site lets you post under a pseudonym if you like.

SciFi Question of the Day: The old "Lost in Space" had a simple premise of a space-faring family whose navigation broke and now they aren't able to get home. The new "Lost in Space" is much more complicated. Do SciFi stories NEED to be so complicated these days in order to hold a modern audience? (Try not to spoil LIS for those who haven't seen it yet.) #SFQotD
