There are kids in High School right now that have no idea what life was like before September 11th, 2001. That is scary. I am 1/3 of the way through my life and I have nothing figured out yet. I still feel like a teenager.
I can relate. The last 25 years is almost like a complete blur to me.
The years I can still remember anything vividly and coherently, was from the mid 1980's. After 1988 or 1989, it seems like my mind runs into a block and ceases to remember anything personal. It's as if my mind is attempting to read an old newspaper or diary, without any context.
