Since I didn’t really fully comprehend it last time I will say one thing that sticks out in my mind is the death of John Lennon. It was a significant historic event in my life . I was 16 at the time.
Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980 as well.
I also mentioned Apollo 11 landing on the moon with Neil Armstrong . I was a little too young to remember it but it was huge and probably effected me in more ways than not.
and of course the death of the only Pope I had ever known , John Paul II and the election of Benedict XVI.
Crisis after bloody well crisis since I have been born . I have known this all my life . These are scary times we live in .
