    to our births that we did not experience. I try to explain this to kids and they don't get it.

    JFK was killed three years before I was born
    I was a toddler when MLK and RFK were killed.
    The voting rights act was a brand new baby when I was born a year later in '66. Before then municipalies made it their law to purposefly prevent lawful citizens from voting.(..ah..er..that just happened last yr too!)
    I was alive when there were American children dying of Pellegra and malnutrition (in the 60s, before free food stamps were widespread, mostly in the South).

    surreal.
