On This Day In History – March 30th

ronald_reaganIt has been a while since writing about the things that happened in history on “this day”. I love the no-nonsense knowledge and want to share with you a couple of the things that I find interesting.

Thirty-two years ago, in 1981, President Ronald Reagan was shot by John Hinckley Jr., as he was leaving a hotel after addressing a labor meeting. He survived the gun shot wound to the chest, which narrowly missed his heart. Others were injured also during the attack by Mr. Hinckley, and survived.

Also, on this date, in 1974, the folksy-feel good singer John Denver, hit the top of the charts with “Sunshine On My Shoulders”. Just about everyone has heard this song at one time or another. John Denver passed away when his plane crashed in 1997.
