8 days before I turned 5 years old, Neil Armstrong Landed on the moon. I remember watching it on a black and white Zenith TV.
I saw Nixon resign on a color Magnavox TV.
I saw a Polish Pope get selected saying Be Not Afraid.
I remember John Paul II appearing in Shea Stadium on a rainy day and watched it clear as he drove into the stadium.
I saw the Hostages get freed when Ronald Reagan was inaugurated after 444 days.
I remember the site of an Electrician in a Polish shipyard start a movement against tryanny
I remember both Reagan and the Pope getting shot and recovering.
I watched the Berlin Wall Fall and the Soviet Union Collapse.
I remember listening to the mother of all briefings by Norman Schwartzkopf
I saw the first internet boom and then the bust.
I cried when I saw the WTC come down on 9/11
I watched the United States get itself tied up trying to react appropriately to being hated.
I just watched the most amazing thing of all. I saw our nation heal its historic open wound. I saw a man of color elected to the Presidency of the United States. I voted for him after voting Republican for President for the last 5 elections. I knew that this was the most important thing we could do for the country. Congratulations to our country, the United States of America.
