    Probably 9/11. I was young enough the thought of things like terrorism was not there until someone had placed it. I remember waking up and reading that a plane had crashed into the WTC on AOL (at the time I did not even know what the WTC was). It was a particularly significant day because it was the day my dad was (supposed) to be flying to Guatemala to pickup my adopted brother- the flight was obviously postponed a few days.

    I have a few earliest memories that stick in my mind. Seeing the Three Musketeers, watching the Russian parliamentary standoff in 1991 (this might have been about the time I became fascinated with my Russian heritage ;)), and a lot of fond McGyver memories as well :D.

  3. Grandma cooking on the wood stove.
    Man, she was tall back then.

    Yeah, odd thing ta stick in yer nut,
    but that be it.

    I was scheduled to go for a draft physical way back then. Got a reprieve for a couple of weeks as the government shut down many things so that Americans could watch.

    I spent the day in front of the tube in my college apartment.

    It would be surreal to watch that exact coverage today, with the paper cut out rockets, etc. None of the high tech stuff like TV uses today..
    Twas a Grand Day for America.
