1. Three events that happened on my birthday are:
**In 1509, King Henry the VIII married Catherine of Aragon.
**In 1776, the Continental Congress appointed Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Ben Franklin and others to a committee to draft a declaration of independence.
**In 2004, Ronald Reagan's funeral was held at Washington National Cathedral.
(I remember watching President Reagan's funeral on tv. My mom knew I would be watching and she brought over lunch and sat with Brenna and I on my living room floor. We had our picnic there and later when Nancy Reagan laid her head on the coffin, we both wiped the tears from our eyes.)
2. Others born on June 11 (and Deaths, but I didn't recognize any deaths so I'm just doing birthdays)
**Our friend Dr. Wes Shepherd of VCU-Medical Center ; )
**Today is Kamehameha Day official state holiday in Hawaii, in honor of their first monarch.
So that's it. My birthday Meme. I hope your June 11 is a pleasant day this year! : )
