10. I remember waking up the next morning and my Granma
telling me "Bobby Kennedy was shot last night in Los Angeles."

I had just finished my sophomore year in high school and June 6th was the first day of summer vacation. My oldest brother was in Vietnam and had been since November and my other brother had just graduated from high school the weekend before. My friends and I had made plans that day to go to Rainbow Beach in Chicago for our first "tanning" session of the summer. Needless to say, our beach plans were cancelled and I just remember moping around that day and wondering, what the hell is going on in the world?

1968 was an unforgettable year.
