I was alive during the 9/11 attacks, but being a kid and not being American I didn't really pay any attention or understand until I got older.

Same here. I vaguely remember it but not as clear as the Sept 11th attacks. I do clearly remember when the Berlin Wall came down.

I wasn't alive when Kennedy was shot but I chose it because it's a story I've heard all my life.

It's not a memory for her, because she only heard about it. So basically, it's a true story, for her.

I remember hearing about it more than the other events. Kind of like it was a memory in the collective consciousness.

I remember hearing about all of them. The last 3 are vivid as I saw them on television. But my grandfather was killed in world war II so I will always remember that and have great admiration for all those who fought.

I saw the Challenger Disaster live on TV & I also saw the September 11TH attacks live on TV as they happened! I kinda remember the Freeing of the Hostages of Iran but not as clear as the other two. Wow what memories to have to have to keep in your mind just like they were yesterday, it really sucks. We shouldn't have to have those kind of things embedded in our brains, I was like 18 or 19 when the Challenger Exploded sitting there with my first baby watching cartoons eating lunch & the news came on to show the shuttle take off & BOOM! it Exploded in mid air!

Not sure when the challenger happened, but think I was alive then since I was born in 1985. 9/11 is what I most remember. I was in high school when it happened. It was either homeroom or first period I was in when it happened. Didn't hear about it till the last period and got home and watched what was going on on TV, since they really didn't tell us anything in school, till school was over. You would think when it happened they'd announce it over the PA system in the school, during first period.

WOW I can't believe they didn't tell the students what was going on. That was completely irresponsible of them. It's not as if you were a bunch of Kindergarteners! I was in New Jersey at my brothers house taking care of his 2nd grader when 9/11 happened. 20 miles as the crow flies from the buildings. I watched things unfold on one of the two TV stations that managed to stay on the air, and on the phone with my father who was in Arizona with the rest of my family. I could see the plume of smoke from the kitchen door. We were given the choice to pick up my niece from school, which we did. We weren't sure if more attacks were going to happen, so we wanted her with us for safety.

Well I think they didn't tell us, because they didn't want us to panic or get distracted from our work. I mean I think the priceapal and all the other teachers knew and it spread that way. The teacher of the class we're in turned on the TV for a few minutes to the news and then decided it wasn't a good idea, so she turned it off. Though I still wanted to know what was going on. When I got home, my mom and sister said they saw it happening on the Today show. When they saw that, they called up the school and asked them if I was all right. When my mom told me that. I told her, she should have told them to let me come home.

I'm only twenty, so I was in fifth grade on 9/11. I remember watching the news in the classroom, but I don't remember being afraid. I think I figured that the adults had everything under control. I always believed at that age that if I did what I was told - never talked to strangers, looked both ways before crossing the street - that everything would be okay. Years later, my mom told me how terrified everyone was. They did a good job of hiding that from me at the time.

I was in Preschool when 9/11 happened. I have a faint memory that the adults were acting wierd that day and it was a serious tone, and the parents were scared. I have watched the news clips online of it coming down, and it hits a serious spot for me. I'm glad though that I didn't have to go through that worry and sadness of the day, but I wish I could of actually realized it. It's one thing to just watch a clip many years later when everything is OK. It's another to see it happen on TV, live, and witness the sadness of the event, but witness the rebuilding that happened in 2001 afterwards.

Challenger was in 1986, so I expect there's quite a few people on this site who don't remember it clearly or at all. I was in kindergarten, so I was alive, but I sure don't remember it.

I do remember the Berlin Wall coming down, but I guess that's not US-centric enough for the poll.
