• I just today pulled a newspaper clipping out of a drawer that had images of the people jumping from the world trade center. I will NEVER forget that.
  • 9/11... the moment that changed life for the world as we know it. I'm glad it was my lifetime and that I remember what life was like prior to that event.
  • Watching the twin towers collapse on live TV, I'll never forget that day.
  • 9/11, Also as a child I remember the JFK assassination
  • In recent history it is the live telecast of 9/11. I had just got home from work in the evening and found my wife sitting in front of the TV. I don't think either of us had any coffee or dinner that night. We spent the whole night wathing CNN. It was evening here in India when it happened.
  • Can't beat 9/11.
  • Lots. JFK's funeral procession, hearing about RFK's assassination, the launch and landing of Apollo 11, the explosion of Challenger, the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11... Take your pick.
  • 9/11. I was 8 years old.
  • The parting of the Red Sea. Man you had to BE there!!!
  • Recent history is easy and I'm sure most will say 9/11, or the death of Lady Diana Spenser, but my memories go back a little farther. I can remember getting scared during the Cuban Missile Crisis, when the emergency broadcasting system was tested - I thought we were all going to die. I remember the assassination of JFK, I was very sad and I knew the world would never be the same. I remember the night Cassius Clay beat Sonny Liston for the world heavyweight championship, I listened to the fight on the radio. I paraded around my room with my hands in the air as if I had won the fight myself.
  • I was ridin' the bus home from 2nd grade when I heard Kennedy was shot, keithold. ;-)
  • I remember when Adam and Eve were put into MY Garden of Eden .... J/K ... I actually do remember the assination of John Kennedy , the election of Dwight David Eisenhower as President ....
  • +5 Yes, When John Kennedy was shot but of course the tragic day of 9-11 is there as well. I hate historic moments because all I can recall are deaths, wars starting and bad news.
  • 9/11 followed by: Death of Lady Diana Assassination of John F Kennedy
  • The Moon landing.One of my earliest memories is standing in my front garden as a little boy looking up at the Moon and my father pointing up at it and saying "There are men up there tonight."
  • 911 was just nasty people doing nasty things..nothing special..Lots of buildings have been knocked down and lots of planes have hit buildings. I remember the Neil Armstrong and the moon landing most of all.. That's something that had never been done in all of human history and has only been done once or twice since. It was 2 days prior to my 10th birthday. You can say they didn't do it, but nobody will convince me of it.
  • Nine-eleven, hands down. A good second would be the massacre of Tiananmen Square.
  • 9/11 was very devastating and I empathized with America and New York City. Also Kennedy's Assassination was pretty horrific too.
  • 9/11 I was stationed in Yongsong Korea Its was afternoon. One of my buddies told me a plane hit the WTC I ran to my room to catch the news. I remember thinking what idiot could hit something that big with a plane that's when the 2 hit and I knew it wasn't an accident. The next morning we were in formation in full gear and weapons just in case someone decided to attack our base.
  • 9/11, and I'm not even American...
