Back to my solicitation of input, though. I have to turn in my assignment for the non-fiction lesson in my writing class by tonight, and I still haven't decided what to write about. Here's a short-list of "events" that popped into my head as moments that made an impact on me (full assignment can be viewed here)... can you help me narrow??
Space Shuttle Challenger Explosion
Obama Election Night
Death of Michael Jackson
2000 Presidential Election
Anti-Iraq War Protests in Washington, D.C. (2002-2003)
Red Sox 2004 World Series Victory
