    1944, the Normandy Invasion worked and we went on to defeat both Germany and Japan. Talking to some older folks over the years,t here were times when it looked like we might actually lose that war.

    1974...Watergate, a President that faced possible impeachment resigned, the VP became President for the first time ever that a President resigned due to a scandal and if not pardoned, possible prison time...we survived and moved forward.

    Granted, these events were not likely to cause the end of America but my parents recalled a lot of fear and worry during both of those periods of time, if America could survive. Yes even during Watergate and Vietnam, I had professors who said the country would not survive these events.
