If I Could Have Witnessed An Event In History, Which Would I Choose? And Why?

Off (photography) topic post today! What Event in History Would I Have Wanted to Witness and Why?

Hmmm.... I have so many moments that I'm going to cheat a little (OK, cheat a lot!) and say that I would want to have been 10 years old in 1960.  The entire decade of the '60s has always excited me!!!

Had I been 10 in 1960, it would have let me experience the following events throughout the decade, in no particular order:

  • JFK's assassination
  • Woodstock
  • Beatles Mania
  • Vietnam
  • Landing on the Moon
  • Telephones and TVs were introduced into many households
  • MLK, Jr
  • Cuyahoga River caught fire
  • Hippies
  • Title IX
  • Detroit muscle cars
  • The Graduate, Breakfast at Tiffany's and the 007 franchise
The pop culture, social and political climates and women's rights were ever changing (revolution or evolution?) throughout the '60s faster than most decades had ever changed before then.  I'm awestruck by how much positively changed in these 10 years: men and women became equals and segregation legally ended.

Of course, what I know about the '60s I've learned from history books, movies, books and stories from my relatives who lived in this period.  I admit that I have a poetic and hopeful view of this period of time.  

As much as I want it to be filled with rainbows and kittens, I know there was strife and agony for many; men who were destroyed by war and unwelcomed when they returned home, drug addiction spiked with the introduction of new drugs, and gender and race equality were federally mandated but not in reality.

But, I still would want to experience this decade more than any other event in history.  Now it's your turn!  What event would you choose and why?

Fairlawn/Akron-area Photographer: Broken Road Images

Fairlawn/Akron-area Photographer: Getting to Know Broken Road Images!Hi!  I'm Kelley Brubaker, the woman behind Broken Road Images!  Welcome to my world!

First, a little about me personally...
I was raised to not brag.  🤦 So, this page on my website is by far the hardest for me to write.  Where should I start?  How about a few fun facts about me?
1 - I'm obsessed with Friends reruns!  I watched every episode in real time (or on my VCR if I had other plans on a Thursday night) when the show first aired, but the episodes are timeless and classic.  I love that I can pull up any episode at will on Netflix!  Isn't that "kick you in the crotch, spit on your neck fantastic"?!
2 - Amazon Prime is my kryptonite!
3 - I have a handful of favorite movies that I can never pass up watching when they are on TV: Father of the Bride, A Christmas Story, When Harry Met Sally, Top Gun, Dirty Dancing, any John Hughes movies from the 80s, The Devil Wears Prada, and Pretty Woman.
4 - No mat…
