For people of my generation (Baby Boomers) it is probably the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I was in the fourth grade, and he was the first president I was really aware of, so it makes sense that it would make a deep impression on me, and others of my age group. For my parents generation, I suppose it might be the end of World War II, or the Stock Market Crash of 1929.
I am wondering, for those too young to remember JFK, what momentous event holds a comparable place in your memory?
