This morning I was thinking about Stevie Ray Vaughan. Sometimes it is hard for me to wrap my mind around the idea that I remember hearing the news when Stevie Ray Vaughan died.

It had to have an impact to remember an event when I was four. Shortly after, Dad bought his last album: Family Style.

The girls living net door burst into our yard, screaming, "The War is over, the war is over'...The war in question was WWII. I was happy because it meant Dad was coming home.

I was around when Pearl Harbor was attacked, but i didn't hear of it, although Dad was at the Army recruiter's office the next day when they opened. He was not alone...

At this second the first news report I recall hearing was Reagan being shot.

I did not know you have been on earth for that long.

Not the earliest but best remembered from childhood was the footage of a PHRASECENSOREDPOSTERSHOULDKNOWBETTER. mob assaulting two British army officers, who were handed over to and killed by the IRA.

Remember earlier news events like the Brighton hotel bombing, but watching the assault as a kid, in disbelief that this could be happening in the UK.

The later Apollo launches. Mission unknown but they were the first 'big' news things I remember.
