Written histories tend to focus on a few large stories, but those stories are actually made up of hundreds of smaller stories that come from the people who witnessed or were part of events as they happened. So what stories and memories do you have that should be preserved as part of the historical record?

You might want to tell us about what it was like to witness or be part of a historical event; maybe you want to tell us about a technological shift you saw as it unfolded; or maybe you want to tell us about something you've seen from the present that will be of interest to future historians. Tell us in the comments about something you saw or did and why that memory should be preserved for history.
