What's the first major news event that you remember hearing about as a child? Where did you learn about it? How did it impact your world view?
Mine would have to be 9/11. I was in grade six at the time. I still remember walking into my parents room and finding mum watching a TV report a few hours after the first initial attack. It took a bit for me to actually understand that, yes, things like this do happen in life, and yes, there are people out there who do these sorts of things.
