This challenge is prompted by the song 19-Somethin’ by Mark Wills. You can hear the song here: https://youtu.be/UhSCeItgUEc
27. What do you remember the most from the year that you turned 19? What was going on in your life back then?
The year I turned 19 … personally, a year with a lot of teen angst in it, dating, you know. On a larger scale, let’s see … (asking Google what happened back then because I was too wrapped up in my own life to remember exactly what happened that year …) a Korean air liner was shot down by a Soviet fighter jet. I do remember that. Sally Ride was the first female astronaut, on the Challenger’s first voyage, I remember that, too. And an explosion at a Beirut nightclub killed 237 US Marines. Oh boy, I do remember that.
