The Baby Boomers have a different set of milestones. I was in third grade when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. That memory is as indelible as any event in my life. It also was a harbinger of the turmoil our nation would undergo for the next decade. The assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, only two months apart, seared our national consciousness, dashing the hopes of a brighter future for millions of Americans. Riots in cities across the country exacerbated racial tensions. The Vietnam War did not unite us, but bitterly divided an already fractured society. The anti-war movement defined a generation of young people much like the Depression and WWII defined those who came before us.
