Well, 50 years ago I was finishing college, so I'd have to go back much further than that... we didn't have a TV till I was 8 or 9 so wasn't all that clued into major news events. Probably the one major event that left an indelible impression on my mind was the assassination of JFK... even though I was in high school then. Although I do also remember the Kennedy-Nixon TV debate and the election of Kennedy... that was big when it happened. And like Candice A. Donofrio I clearly remember the headlines announcing Marilyn Monroe's death... that was a real shocker. I also remember Krushchev banging his shoe at the UN in 1960.

I clearly remember the JFK assisination when I was in the 6th grade Tammy Lankford, . Our home was very strongly Republican yet I remember the horror we all felt that a US President was murdered. OH HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED! Today hate runs so strong that the party not in power wishes for the death of our President daily and without shame.

That's because we learned it wasn't made of cheese, so there was no point going out and getting further disappointed!

 

Mine was when we landed on the moon.  My second memory is my mom telling me we were moving to Earth instead to blend in with the humans.

I wish they would spend time 'fixing' things at home instead of craping up the entire universe. I say that because all those astronauts left 90+ lbs of dung on the moon. We polute everywhere we go. It's disgusting.
