The first major new event I remember was JFK's assassination. My dad was stationed in France, so we were living there. I was six and in first grade. My mother came into my bedroom and told me there was no school because someone had killed the president. She was crying.

It didn't really have an impact on my world view because I don't think, at six, I really had a world view. Other things had more impact as I got older and started to understand more. Things like the Viet Nam War, The Cold War, other assassinations. Most of those things turned me into a complete pacifist.
