The year of 2012 is coming to a close end and we have seen it all, from triumph to tragedy. At this time, everyone begins to reflect on our best and worst moments and we have complied our list of the 25 Most Memorable Moments of 2012.

One of the most recent memorable moments happened when Superstorm Sandy hit the east coast. To say the storm took away many people’s homes and lives would be an understatement. But out of this tragic event, the people of the east coast really showed their spirit. Not to mention all the benefit concerts and fundraising events that went to help the victims of the Sandy.
One the most memorable events of the year is one we all wish never happened. The tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary left the whole country shaken and sadden. While the shooting had re-sparked a political debate concerning gun control & mental health, it did inspire the internet movement of 26 Acts Of Kindness. This not only honored the memory of the 26 victims but made us all create something positive from this negative event.
