The Terrorist Attack on September 11, 2001 have left an imprint on my life because it was when I started noticing the world around me. I was in 1st grade at this time and when the attack happened, my teacher would started talking about it. Not only was my teacher, my parents started making me watch the news for the first time to understand these world events. Before the attack, I was carefree and didn’t care much or notice the world events. Therefore, the Terrorist Attack was the first time I opened my eyes to the outside world.
Mad Cow Disease: May 20, 2003 When Mad Cow Disease was found in the United States, I was only in 3rd Grade. The reason on why this left an imprint on my life was because I remember everyone making it a big deal in my school and home. Back then, I was a child who loves to go to McDonalds for a cheeseburger. However, when my parents heard of Mad Cow Disease, they forced me not to eat meat from McDonalds. This was a big thing for me because it made me sad. I was just a kid so McDonalds was a big deal. Not having a cheeseburger affected me at the time. Therefore, Mad Cow Disease prevented me from having beef and left an imprint on my childhood.Social Network(Facebook): February 4, 2004 When Social Networking, Facebook, came out, it made a big deal to me. This was also the first time my father allowed me to use the internet and have my first e-mail account. Even though Facebook came out at this time, I didn’t start using it until 2008. However, I used my e-mail and Instant Messaging often at this time. This left an imprint on my life because I had access to the outside world instead of just through the phone.
Nancy Pelosi(First Woman Speaker of the House):January 2007 When I first heard of Nancy Pelosi being the first woman speaker of the house, I was inspired. It showed me that women were able to take office positions as well as just men. I started to realize, during that time, that the United States is becoming more diverse and equal. This was the time I started to watch the news more often than I did in the past. Nancy Pelosi made me realize that a woman can do as well as a man. Therefore, this event has left an imprint on my life.Obama Presidential Election: November 2008 This was one of the events that I remembered very clearing because it was just about 2-3 years ago. I remember being in my World Geography class talking about the election and how everyone has their own opinion. Even though I wasn’t old enough to vote, I was able to focus and take interest into something like this for the first time. My friend and I was on the phone together watching the news to see who would won. It made an imprint on my life because I had my own opinion and stand about politics.
This was the first major, national news that I can recall in my memory. I remember I was in class when my teacher told me about it. She said that it happened in New York and I was really scared because I had family that lived there. It was also the first time that I learned about terrorists. Up until the day, I thought that America was in good terms with all other nations. I was naïve and believed that attacks like this didn’t happen. This event opened my eyes to the reality of America and it’s relations.
