 i have lived through the ethiopian immigration to israel when i was about 7 and than the gulf war when i was 8, we had to wear gas masks and sit in a "safe" room that was really my parents bedroom duct taped shut with tarps on the windows and a bucket for a toilet incase of an emergency. it was not fun to sit through the bombings and having to carry around those masks everywhere but we lived through it and i have some fond memories of playing board games to pass the time during those long night, i now know that my parents made us play so we wouldnt pay attention when the bombs fell.

ETA: what are historic events that you remember?

i also lived through 9/11, my sister was there and saw the whole thing go down. we thought we lost her for a little while when cell service went down with the towers. the last thing my dad heard was "OMG DAD THE TOWERS ARE COMING DOWN!!!" and than nothing for about 2 hours. she is fine now, she got out with just glass in her feet and lots of soot on her clothes


yes please
