Notable world events happen every day and depending on how well you related to it decided how well you remembered the event and what you doing at the time. For me the event that affected me personally the most was the Anthrax Scare immediately following the 9/11 attack on the U.S. Two other earth shattering events that really took me off my feet were the Columbia Space Shuttle accident and the tsunami in Asia that killed over 225 thousand people. Natural world disasters are truly terrifying in the fact that no one has control of anything that made that made them happen. If you are an American and alive and well today you know about the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. Fast forwarding a month would be the anthrax scare postal workers faced in October.
