How to Preserve Memories Forever

How to Preserve Memories Forever

There are so many things and events in life that should never be forgotten. Let’s learn how to preserve memories forever. If I were to give you a date, then ask you what you were doing on that date, would you be able to come up with an answer?  Do you know what you were doing 10 years ago today?  What about 10 Months ago?  10 days?  Can you provide me a list of the milestones your life has had over the past year?

Now, just for a moment, suppose that date was July 20, 1969.  Would you remember that America landed on the moon on that day?  Could you recall what you were doing when you watched the television and listened to the radio of it happening?  This was one of the best moments in history, and the world watched and listened as these events happened.  This was before I was born, but I wish I could have been there.  I have always been fascinated by our space program, and what it stands for.

What if that date was September 11, 2001?  Do you remember what you were doing when you heard that America had been attacked
by terrorists flying planes into the World Trade Center buildings?  This was truly a dark day in the history of America!  I can remember when I heard the news, what I was doing, and how I felt.  My heart still breaks when I see the images and view the video.

How to Preserve Memories

How do you remember your personal memories?

In our lives, there are memories that we believe will always be fresh in our minds, but what happens when our age causes those memories to fade?  Ok, so in the case of September 11, or Columbine High School shootings, or Perl Harbor, it might not be such a bad thing for those memories to fade into the background. (As long as we remember the lessons learned and the lives lost.)  But, what about the memories we treasure?  What if we were to forget our Wedding day, or the birth of our children?  These treasured memories are, in my mind, more important than national events because they are personal and help to make us who we are.  The reality is that I remember many of the details from my wedding.  But, what have I forgotten.

If you have been following our blog, you know that Marcie and I have been married just over 11 years (as of the time of this writing.)  We have been talking about the various things that happened in the Wedding of Substitutions!  I know that what we have shared is a lot of things, but I also know that there was more things that we simply cannot remember even now.  What is going to happen when we have been married 20 years? What about 50?  Fortunately, we have our blog where we have written these things down, but they need to be protected!  What would happen if, after 30 years, we lost the information on our blog?
