My first geopolitical memory...

This is the first memory of world politics I ever had. Of course, I remember other things before this, like birthday parties and bits with my family, but this is the first global memory I have, isn't that weird? Funny how death and destruction stick with you like that.

Course, my second best remembered memory of childhood was Reagan getting shot, so goes to prove that violence does make an impact.

However, I do believe that recall happy momemts with family before either of those times, but the first time I was made aware of the great big old world was those two events. How funny is that? Perhaps this is why I'm wharped.
