Sweet Sixteen

1968, the year that I turned sixteen, was an eventful year. For myself, my friends, and my generation, it was a transformative one:

Jan--Tet Offensive in Vietnam 
Apr--Martin Luther King Jr. assassinated
May--Paris student riots bring economy of France to halt
Jun--Robert Francis Kennedy assassinated
Aug--Democratic National Convention in Chicago
Oct--Tlatelolco massacre in Mexico City
        Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association banned
