This past week featured two unfortunate anniversaries – The Oklahoma City Bombing and the Shootings at Columbine.
Like most people, these events are forever embedded in my mind. As I read about the anniversaries, I started to think about some of the other major events that have occurred over my lifetime (for reference, I am 27). For whatever reason, I felt like creating a list and posting it here. I think it’s important to remember these events from time-to-time for varying reasons. Feel free to add anything you think I may have missed…
Oklahoma City Bombing
Shootings at Columbine
The 2000 Presidential Election
The 1993 World Trade Center Bombing
The Election of Barack Obama
Operation Desert Storm/Gulf War
Iraq War/Operation Iraqi Freedom
The Bill Clinton Scandal
The Capture of Saddam Hussein
The Siege of Waco
Obviously, some of these are far less significant the others but they’ve all stuck with me for one reason or another. Any others?
