Some of us are old enough to remember.
Richard M. Nixon became the only President ever to resign from office.
I was a few weeks away from starting my freshman year of college and leaving home for the first time. My parents were teachers and were home, and I remember watching the speech with them and watching Nixon board the plane and do his final "victory salute" or whatever that gesture was.
I was only 17 and not really interested in politics, and had been tuning out the whole Watergate thing for months. But I also remember a feeling of profoundness at watching history being made.
After the speech I went to my room and turned on the radio. This song was playing:
Come on people, now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now
Anyone else have memories of that day?
