This Day In History...

So my segment "This Day In History" has fallen a little short lately but it (remarkably) is not because I am lazy (which one would think). Actually it is because e every time I research history the only things I can find are depressing like "French revolutionary Jean Paul Marat was stabbed to death in his bath by royalist sympathizer Charlotte Corday."...Haha? Like really what am I suppose to say about that? Be glad that you aren't Jean Paul Marat? Honestly. But i do research it everyday.

Today however, I found a little gem that I can definitely make some light of. In 1977, A 25-hour blackout hit New York City, engendering widespread rioting and looting! OMG the same thing happened to us! Now I may not have mentioned it in the initial post but there was definitely a lot of crime that happened the night of our rolling, 25 hour blackout. Luckly, I am a photo journalist and documented the raw terror of our night:

This is one of the first effects of the blackout...I am not going to tell you what it is but it missed the pad.

There was graffiti everywhere!

Watch out it's a mugger!

In the end, she got my wallet but not my pride.

So in conclusion I just want to say I know how they felt, because I too had a night of darkness...and terror.
