You make a good point, about aging, but I have a little more experience with it. I was 5 when JFK was shot, and remember my Dad’s shock that someone had killed the “Leader of the Free World”. That sounds quaint now but that is how his generation thought. Not till 9/11 was there another moment when time stood still and the World changed forever.
