ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov. 25

Do you remember where you were when certain life changing news comes at you. For me it starts with Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. I was still 7 years old. That is followed, in my head, by Franklin Roosevelt's death. Skip to the two Kennedy assassinations. Then comes the death of Dr. Martin Luther King. A pause, then 9/11. Another picture that is so clear in my mind is when I was helping at my daughters Synagogue. I remember just where I was in the room, exactly what I was doing .They were having their annual rummage sale and I guess I must have said that I would help. I noticed a woman  who was there to help, she set her husband in a chair near where she was working. He could always see her but he didn't participate .She reminded him not to leave the chair. I see this so clearly. I can tell you that he had on a blue sweater. Why do I remember this flash of a scenario 20 years later. How could I know .......
