Historic Moments

For each generation, there are just a few events that will forever define and shape that period of history. More numerous are the other events — some local, some global — that also mark the timelines of our lives. Some events mark a precide date and time — others were experienced by different individuals at different times, but are equally memorable.

Whether it's the assassination of an American President, a "historic first" for mankind or the seasonal celebration of a hard-fought sports victory — we all hold a piece of history in our own minds.
