Lately for some reason, I've been looking back at the moments of History that happened in my lifetime that stand out the most to me. The assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 is the first historical moment that comes to my mind. I was in Junior High School when President Kennedy was elected as our President and he was the first President I ever paid any attention to. His being a Catholic had some bearing on this I'm sure because at that time my whole family were practicing Catholics. Yet, I think what really drew me to him was he was young enough that I finally could find interest in the Presidency and I loved reading about him and his marriage to Jackie Kennedy, their children, and their Family life together. Following their lives was like reading a good book and even after President Kennedy's assassination the lives of Jackie and his children would continue to be of major interest until the deaths of of Jackie and John Jr. I know the story is still continuing with Caroline but she is not an open book like the rest of them were and so the book has been set aside by me now. The second moment in history that stands out in my mind is the Vietnam War. I can't say all of it because until today when I went to save a picture to share I really did not know that this war had been going on since 1954. What I remember was the years between 1969-1975. Alot of my guy friends were drafted into this War and most of them were not happy about this at all, they didn't feel it was their war and they didn't understand why they had to go fight in it. All my friends came back alive from that War....but they were never the same physically or mentally. Personally I believe America should have never sent our young men to fight in that war. I remember all the vivid pictures that were in Life magazine of the people fighting in this War and the people affected by this War....and it all makes no sense to me that so many innocent people got injured or killed because of the Vietnam War. To this day people are still being affected by it...Agent Orange is wrecking havoc in the bodies and minds of many of our Veterans. The third moment in history that stands out for me is the Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster. And this moment mostly because of Christa McAuliffe the first teacher to be picked for a trip into space. I was pregnant with my last child at this time and my oldest child was in school...so a teacher going into space was exciting for my oldest daughter and I to talk about. And of course her teacher was talking about it too. I remember when they kept having to delay the lift-off that I had a premonition that they should abort that mission. And it was with dread that I watched the day the lift-off finally happen...and then turn into a disaster! I didn't know what was going to go wrong, but I did feel in my heart that something was going to...and it would not be good. I pretty much lost all interest in the Space program after this disaster and have never picked up that interest again. So when you look back on your life...what moments in History stand out the most for you?
