Remembering the 2000s
Wow, where did the decade go? No matter what year you graduated from high school, this last decade was a memorable one with milestones and events that we'll never forget. Looking back, there's several things that stand out and ensure that we'll remember the 2000s for years to come.
Do you remember 1990?

Do you remember 1980?
- In what is known as the Miracle on Ice, an out-matched team of college kids making up Team USA defeats the Soviet Union in the semifinals of the 1980 Winter Olympics. The Soviets were heavily favored, had defeated the US team earlier in the year and had also beaten an NHL All-Star Team. The US went on to win gold.
- Mt. St. Helens erupts in the state of Washington, spreading ash halfway across the United States and causing $3 billion dollars worth of damage.
