    Re: Oh the things we have seen

    What is that saying? Life is filled with mostly small moments and a few large ones in-between. Something like that, anyway.

    I moved to California two days after the Challenger disaster. I was in AP English when the OJ Simpson verdict was read. When the Whittier earthquake hit I was in my jammies playing 'The Legend of Zelda' before heading off to school.

    Anyone remember the song 'We Didn't Start the Fire' by Billy Joel. The songs spans from 1945 through 1989-- the start of the baby boomer Generation to Reagan's last days in office. It's a short period of time compared to human history, but a lot of big events occured.

    What a great song that was!

    Re: Oh the things we have seen

    I remember:

    JFK's funeral - my mother watching and crying.
    The first moon walk.
    Eating a Baby Ruth bar when the radio announcer announced that Elvis had died.
    The people fleeing from Vietnam in boats.
    Nixon stepping down, Ford stepping up.
    The Iran hostages.
    Gold prices skyrocketing (of course that is when I bought some - dumb, dumb)
    John Lennon's murder
    Princess Diana's wedding (got up early to watch it!)

    I also remember penny candy, the 5&10 stores that dotted our county, Creature Features at 10:00, riding my bike all over the place (without a helmet!), only wearing a seatbelt when we were on the highway, when the rubella immunization came out the lines of people waiting for their shots. I also remember writing reports in long hand, no computers or typewritters. I remember taking shorthand and business classes in high school (I actually belonged to FBLA as a VP).

    It will be interesting to see what the kids from today will remember as pivotal when they grow up.

    Good idea for a topic.
