What blew you away in 2009 ?

What are 1 or 2 (or more) .. things that happened this year that you will never forget...
Perhaps a moment that some call... "Where were you when"...

For me it was Miracle on the Hudson 1/15/2009
I still have a picture of that plane sitting on the Hudson with passengers standing on the wing... it inspires me...

The inauguration of President Obama. It felt like a historic day to me.

And yeah, the Miracle on the Hudson was definitely a feel-good moment for this year as well!

I remember the day after the election...I had some dental work done. The dentists assistant asked me what I thought about the election, before my dentist came in...I told her I was not in agreement with the outcome but thought that it was a great day in America nonetheless....

my dentist was not as "cordial" as I was.....

to hear them bantering back and forth....a 27 yr. old woman and a 45 yr. old man...both "WAY ON THEIR SIDE" of politics, was quite interesting...

when I had 2 hands in my mouth and couldn't respond to...."Well, Gary said it is a good thing for America too!"...or to "No he didn't...did you?...he is a (fill in the blank) too!"....

This is not a national event, but my husband's brother's home burned down in August of this year. They have three children, ages 15, 6 and 4. I was blown away by the generosity of our community. People they didn't know, churches they didn't attend brought clothes, food, and gift cards. It was truly amazing and humbling.

For me it's the tsunami in American Samoa- since my family lives there & it was a while before knowing if they were okay. It was also cool to see my community helping them- we have several Samoan football players for the Ducks and they organized drives to get water and supplies to them. It was awesome.

Also on a personal note- I became a first time home owner this year and that was quite significant for me and my husband. His sister is in labor now with our first niece/the first grandbaby and that's a pretty big life changing event.

my mother and my grandmother both passed away within 6 days of each other in november... that is my bad memory of 2009.

my son who has been on drugs for 3 years and who hasnt spoken to me in all that time, got clean and we have begun rebuilding our relationship.. that is a good part of 2009.
