17. I grew up in a bubble that lasted until elementary school

 

Upper middle class neighborhood that was like living in that famous Seurat painting. My first notion that something was wrong was when I saw the bodies on the TV from Jonestown. That image has stuck with me. It all kind of went down hill from there. Then I remember in junior high drawing pictures of mushroom clouds and thinking that nuclear war would be pretty cool, at least the zombie apocalypse aspects of it. It was Ronnie Rayguns presidency after all. It's depressing when I realize that a Democrat has only been in the Oval Office for 16 years of my lifetime and I'm nearing 50.
