Highlights of the noughties


Recommended Posts

What do you think are your personal highlights and the global highlights of the 00s? These can be anything significant to you, your friends or family or in the world whether good or bad, it's up to you.

We may have a vote on the biggest global highlights or events of the last decade but you have to nominate them.

For me:

The worst highlights of the decade (world):

September 11th 2001

I remember watching this on the TV on the day it happened, even then I was distraught and - due to my young age - fascinated at a tower falling down. I regard it as one of the worst attacks against humanity in the last 50 years. I also remember that I was in Primary 3 (English Year 3) and the announcement thing (tannoy (sort of like an airport PA)) announced that the towers had collapsed and over 2000 people were killed.

The best highlights of the decade (world):

January 20th 2009

George Bush gone, Barack Obama comes in. Thank God the Bush Administration is gone.

May 1st 2004

The European Union expands to 26 member states, its largest expansion yet. Countries admitted:

Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Malta and Cyprus

I like it because it makes travelling and living in Europe much easier.

I'll have to think of my personal highlights because there are loads.
