 This year marked the 50th anniversary of one of the most pivotal years in American history, from the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to the historic "I Have a Dream" speech by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Those two events were monumental, changing and shaping the course of America for years to come.

But 1963 witnessed other moments, both big and small, that had a lasting impact. The Boeing 727 took its first flight. The first push-button telephone was introduced. The "red phone" between Washington and Moscow, a hotline by the two superpowers to avert world crisis, was established.

On the cultural front, instant replay was used for the first time when the Army-Navy game aired on CBS. Alfred Hitchcock's new movie, "The Birds," was released. And the Beatles burst onto the music scene.

Here is a look back at some of those defining moments:

Well, I wasn't around for any of that but it definitely was a very important year.  Why did you choose 1963, Bopeep; just out of curiosity?  :confused:

Amen~!

 

And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:16-17

As a sign of the times 1963 marked the beginning of the end of America when God was kicked out of schools and abortion made legal.  The irony of it all is that there was a business established that year called "Lands End".  Here's your sign...

To follow the train of thought that I presented here is paradoxal in nature. To consider the establishment of various brands over time coinciding with the decdence of our nation one must consider various branding as 'the Gap' and our apostasy as a nation or 'Faded Glory' and rise of China's ownership in our country via debt inceeases. I don't know. It is peculiar though. Irony?

Abortion was legalized in 1973...but point made...the 60's were liberating in some very good ways but also were destructive (probably could be said for any year)
