What happened the day you were born?
There is no subject closer to anyone’s heart with precious few exceptions than ‘them self’. Even people professing to do the most altruistic charity work, may be found to be undertaking this for some form of self satisfaction, albeit producing much in the way of beneficial outcome in the process. In short most people have an intrinsic deep interest and curiosity in what happened on the day they were born, but ironically may have precious little knowledge of these events. If a question is posed to most individuals 'What Happened On The Day You Were Born?" it is a fair bet the response will not extend much past "Well I Was Born Of Course?". True, but there were also a myriad of news events happening at that moment, fashions and music in vogue, sporting events and a whole world that was the effective and unique stage of an individual's entry to the world.
The famous Homer Simpson in an episode of the television cartoon show ‘The Simpsons’ was visiting a newspaper office with his son Bart. He came across a computer with the caption ‘Find Out What Happened When You Were Born’ – Homer being Homer, duly complied and came up with the Newspaper headline for the day ‘Horrendously Ugly Baby Born!’ This fictional anecdote vividly highlights a truism that people with a few (debatable) exceptions are thoroughly interested in the events that occurred when they were born.
To delve into ones past often arises out of a natural curiosity to establish one’s roots. A likely first port of call is to look up old family photographs, and depending on the photographic interest in family members a wealth of material can be provided to supplement childhood memories – maybe your father or other close relative/friend took a photograph on the day you were born, or shortly thereafter. It is sad to think that for future generations many childhood photographs may be untaken due to the irrational pressures of ‘political correctness’.
