First Major News Story I Remember
I have seen quite a few of these and thought it sounded fun.
- •A lot of the others I have seen regarded the Challenger exploding
- •I think it shows my youth that I learned about that during a history class in 6th gradeWe all got to choose our topics so my friends was about the challenger and mine was about Charles Lindbergh
- •I don't know how they all fit together
- •Anyway, the first major news story I remember is Barack Obama getting elected in 2008
- •This would make me 9 years oldI feel like I should remember something before this but, this is the first thing that popped in my head.
- •I was in elementary school and the school held a mock election.
- •I was very excited about it although in retrospect I'm not completely sure why. Since we were all so young each of us just voted for who out parents supported.
- •That did not stop 4th grade me from smack talking John McCain supporters.It went something like this:
- •Me: But Obama just seems nice.
- •My Best Friend: I dunno I think I like John McCain because his hair looks like my grandpa's.
- •At my school Obama and I lost the election.I was annoyed for about 15 min till I went to recess.
