jan 14, 2012 - 2012


Major Event 1:
The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, when 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult staff members. Prior to driving to the school, he shot and killed his mother at their Newtown home. As first responders arrived at the scene, Lanza committed suicide by shooting himself in the head

Major Event 2:
On the 6th February 2012 marked the 60th anniversary of the Queen's accession to the thrones of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (as well as the 60th anniversary of her becoming Head of the Commonwealth). Celebrations were held in these countries to mark the occasion.

Pop Culture:
(Jeremy Lin)
When the New York Knicks picked up Jeremy Lin as a backup point guard in late 2011, he was widely regarded as a temporary Band-Aid designed to cover for injured players Iman Shumpert and Baron Davis. Shocking both fans and analysts, Lin came from nowhere and absolutely dominated for a weeks-long stretch in early 2012, averaging nearly 25 points and 9 assists per game, with a peak of 38 points in a February 10 game against the Lakers.

Personal History:
For me 2012 was a very exciting year, I flew on a plane for the first time for a lacrosse tournament in philly. While in Philly I also visited a beach for the first time. It was everything i had made it out to be and more.
