People throughout the world experience catastrophes, and contentment throughout their lives. Some incidences may impact just their lives, or even the world. People experience occurrences in their generation where only they could have an emotional connection. Ancestors, grandparents, and our parents have experienced situations in their lives, which we could only take a glimpse of. We see the photos, we hear the stories but we don't feel the emotions, which they experience during that time. In my generation there have been events in my life that I classify devastating and memorable. In the following paragraphs I will present the aspects of my generation of how incidences may impact our lives and the lives all across the world.
In 1981 the year of my birth, Pope John Paul II and President Reagan, are both shot in assassination attempts. He was the first non-Italian pope in 450 years and the first Polish pope.

In 1984 a Rock n’ Roll Group Queen release their album Queens Greatest Hits Volume I.
Without a doubt the album goes Platinum, with hits like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another Bites The Dust,” “We Are The Champions” and “We Will Rock You”. My favorite song from the album is “We Will Rock You.” I really enjoy the song because it has personal significance and not only that, but it has a nice beat to it. The song has become an anthem in American sports, its heard in almost every closing game.
In 1987 I must be the number one G.I. Joe fan in the world. I couldn’t stop playing with the action figures. I would never miss a cartoon episode on TV; it was my favorite cartoon show. G.I Joe was about an army that would fight a group of bad guys that were called Cobra. It was the typical children show, Good vs. Evil. G.I.
