1981: What were you doing the day that Pope John Paul II was shot?

leave a comment »

Do you remember the day that Pope John Paul II was shot?  It happened on this day in 1981.

I was in Mexico City and my mother called me with the news.  The incident happened about 45 days after the attempt to assasinate President Reagan.

Reagan and John Paul II recovered and had a huge impact in the 1980s, specially the collapse of the USSR.
