Over the course of history, some events set themselves apart in our memories. The shooting of President John F. Kennedy Jr. on November 22, 1963, in Dallas. Clouds from an atomic bomb billowing over Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. Neil Armstrong walking on the moon on July 20, 1969. These are defining moments, instants that become part of our collective consciousness and change the way we see ourselves and our world.
1995 was a year with many such common reference points. November 4 -- the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. April 19 -- the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. March 20 -- the nerve gas attack on Tokyo's subway system. 1995 had inspiring moments as well, like June 29, the day Russian and American astronauts met in space to prepare for a future space station, or September 13, when Cal Ripken Jr. of the Baltimore Orioles broke Lou Gehrig's record of consecutive baseball games.
