When Kennedy was shot: kicking my Mum from the inside of her womb

When Nixon Resigned - washing dishes in my Grandmothers Kitchen in Up-State New York while the grown-ups all sat around a little black and White in the living room talking in hushed tones. We children knew something major was coming down but didn't quite get it. We figured..guy screwed up, guy resigns, no biggie. Heck, we kids were thrilled cuz we hated the old fart. Our parents seems bewildered.

When Siagon Fell - listening to the news on a transister radio whilst sitting a boat on a river fishing for large mouth bass with my young cousin aboard whose Dad died in Vietnam (Cambodia actually)

First Man on The Moon - Eating pretzel sticks and glued to the TV with my older sister in our cottage in the woods. Reception was lousy and she put tin foil on the Antenna plus a few metal hair barrettes for good measure.
