    For me it's the Kennedy assassination and 9/11.
    I've been watching some incredible shows on the Military Channel tonight about the Kennedy Secret Service agents; I still get chills when I see the Zapruder film, and it's incredible to see such stoic SS guys get emotional when they recall what happened that day (they still blame themselves).
    I was just a little kid, but I'll never forget all the adults crying (starting with the nuns at school, who sent us home--unheard of!) and the neverending reporting on TV. And they stopped all music on the radio for about a week; imagine that today!
    I was in NYC on 9/11, 'nuff said.
    Can't help but wonder what our world would be like now had Kennedy lived and 9/11 never happened.

    hmmmm First satellite into space, first man in space, Cuban Missile crisis, Kennedy assassination, Viet-nam, the 60's in general, man on the moon, Watergate, Nixon resigns. That should bring it up to speed on whatever the rest of you post.

    9/11 for sure.

    The destruction of the Berlin Wall was big,
    as was the space shuttle Challenger explosion.
    The election of the first black president will be learned about in history classes from here on out.
    Also the Bat Boy being found in that cave.
