Dear 100 Hour Board,
What's the very first major news story you can remember living through?
-War on Terror Declaration
So I, uh, don't really follow news all that much. Like, currently pretty much all my news comes from reading the Board...
Anyways, what this means is that I haven't exactly paid the best attention to major news stories in my life. Because of that, the first major news thing I can remember is President Obama's inauguration, and I'm fairly certain the only reason I remember that is because I was in school, and all the students were forced to got to watch it.
I don't think I actually watched any of the news coverage, nor did I really understand what was happening, but I remember 9/11.
I remember watching the footage of 9/11 in my second grade class. The principal made an announcement over the intercom telling all the teachers to turn their TVs on, and I could tell that everyone was really sad and that something bad was happening, but I didn't totally understand what was going on.
I remember seeing news coverage of the Oklahoma City Bombing on April 19, 1995.
