  • Operation Desert Storm

    Operation Desert Storm
    I remember sitting in English class & having a discussion about how our country was at war. This impacted our country and its relationship with many countries in the Middle East.

    MySpace was started in 2003. It introduced the world to the new concept of "social networking".

It was the first time I watched the news from something occuring in our country & thought "How can this look like a Third World Country?" Thousands perished, and the area affected by the disaster (Louisiana, Alabama, & Mississippi) are still feeling the effects of the storm. People lost their homes, their livelihoods, and their communities in addition to their sense of identity.
