People often remember what they were doing when they heard the news of important events in histo

ry. In the United States, for example, many people remember what they were doing on April 4, 1968. This was one of the most important events in modern American history. On this day, Dr Martin Luther King was killed in the city of Memphis in America. Although some people may not remember who murdered him, they remember what they were doing when they heard about the event.

Even the most everyday activities can seem important. Robert Allen is now over 40. He was just a school student at that time, but he remembers what he was doing when he heard the news. “It was a bright, sunny day.” Robert remembers. “We were having fun in the playground when the bell rang. Our teacher asked us to stop what we were doing and listen. He told us the news: “Dr Martin Luther King died just 10 minutes ago! We couldn?t believe it!” School closed for the day, and Robert and his friends walked home together in silence.
silence n. 寂静;沉默 silent adj. 寂静的;沉默的 in silence 沉默 keep silent 保持安静
