    Interesting take. I enjoyed reading this. The events that immediately come to mind for me are The Powerpuff Girls, Star Trek Enterprise, 9/11, and the Northeast blackout of 2003. The Powerpuff Girls came out in 1998 a few months after I was born. I literally grew up with that show. I don't remember anything from 9/11 since I was too young to know what was going on at that time (my mom said I was in daycare). I remember the blackout occurring though. I was 5 years old but I don't remember any specific details. All I know was that there was a blackout in my apartment building and I was scared.

    I'm older than the fall of the U. S. I remember when we were free to have our own opinions without being attacked for them. I remember when the Constitution was held sacred. I remember when we respected those who protect us. These things I listed were what made America America. These things have passed and our country with it.
