Jonestown was a village in guyana most famous for the peoples temple which was started by Jim Jones. On November 18th, 1978, Jim Jones gave 909 people a fruit punch with cyanide, chloral hydrate, valium, and phenergan which led to the deaths of 909 people. This at the time was the largest mass suicide. That record lasted for about 22 years and ten months before the attacks on 9/11. This shows how tons of people wanted to go to Jonestown becaus ethers was no money issues, or political issues-it was paradise. Jim Jones was wanting it at the time to be a paradise, but then went down a horrible path. This just shows how someone should get too far into something that really is a little uncommon. Not everybody can just have some sort a Brady bunch happy smiles life like that. The people interviewed in the documentary all wanted to go to paradise until the cool-aid incident. This is very sad and tragic, because many people trusted Jim Jones.
It's been three years since a mentally ill man came in and shot 20 children and 6 adults (one of which was his mother) before taking his own life. This is a very tragic story. There are couple of kids talked about in here whose life's where taken on that December day in 2012, and it also tells about how the families are getting along with it. They built a new school in Sandy Hook just to get the bad vibes someone may say. Many people can be mentally crushed by a death if a family member, and this article has the power to show just how lucky some people can be. This December, it will be 5 years ago since that horrible event.
This is an interview from 1974 with Corrie Ten Boom, a holocaust survivor from Holland. My dad met her in the seventies, and it really was a persuasion to look her up. She tells of the horrible things they did to people, and how she hid her bible the whole time. She lost her whole family in a concentration camp. This is super hard and a super emotional story. Ten Boom wrote "The Hiding Place" which was later made into a movie.
9/11 was the disaster where Al-Qaeda flew planes right through the twin towers, pentagon, and one crashed in Pennsylvania. This song basically asks where people were at that moment. That is one the most asked questions that have been brought between my friends is "where someone was". This song is very famous for touching people's hearts. Especially country lovers. Again this is a very touching song, and shows how it affected not just New York and D.C. but the whole country.
