Poor Brian Williams, he got caught up in memory loss problem that all humans share.
Let me tell you this little story that happened last year.
I was with my sister and brother and we were sharing memories of our childhood and things and I started
to tell this story of us living in McNary Arizona when I was 5 years old. As I was reminiscing it was pointed out
to me that parts of my story didn't happen that way. But, it didn't happen my sister's way either. But my brother's
story was right on the money. How did that happen?
As humans we have the problem of "memory correlation lapse". We lose parts of our memories over time and
our brain looks for relative occurences that match those memories and it blends them together, into a whole new
memory. Our memories are all that we have of our lives. But every now and then, your brain tricks you.
This happens very much when you are reliving a stressful situation. The brain shuts out the bad parts and gives you
new memories. I feel that this is what happened to Brian Williams and his ride in that helicopter. I, in no way, will
ever call him a liar. He is just another human dealing with bad memories.
