One of our contributors turns 21 today, a big miles stone in any ones life. He typed up his Top ten moments in his 21 years on this planet, even including the ones when he was only 1 or 2 it’s still counts he was alive for them.

pictures will speak more than words in this post. 9/11 and 7/7 wont feature as well they feature in everyone’s list. (but they are important). He would like to stress these represent no political views or associations that the writer has.

1. The Collapse of the Soviet Union and the End of the Cold war



2. Princess Diana’s Death










3. New Labour winning in 1997

4. The First Gulf War operation Desert Storm

5. The Queen Elizabeth II  Golden Jubilee

7. The Internet or the World Wide web as we know it


8.  Genocide in the former Yugoslavia


9. London Riots 2011

There are many more to name a few, but it makes me wonder for the actual short period that myself have been on the planet how much and quickly things have changed.
