Because I Like Lists: Events That Had A Big Emotional Impact on Me

For the past few days, for no apparent reason, I've been concocting this list of the national/international events that have had the most vivid effect on me thus far in my life. I'm not sure what it means that the earliest one that really had a big impact was when I was 16. I remember some politically or culturally significant events before that, but they didn't really hit me hard in the way stuff did later. Maybe I just wasn't capable of fully understanding the implications of those earlier events, and so didn't respond as deeply.
