I winked into existence before...before so many things. I was before we lost John F. Kennedy, or baby brother Bobby...or Martin. I was before the polio vaccine, before the end of the Vietnam War...before we knew what a terrorist was. I was before the Iran hostage crisis, before we elected a movie star as President of the United States...I was before the personal computer, before the US boycott of the Olympics held in Russia...before the fall of the Berlin wall and before 9/11. I was before...so many things.
