People, We are the generation to make this happen. We have heard the ol' timers or read something about the 1900's with phrases such as the 'war of ought 4' or the 'floods of ought 6', etc. But what have we done so far? We are almost out of time to set our own 'Ought x'. It is 2009 for goodness sake (Ought 9). The picture here is the Chehalis Washington flood of ought 7. It was bad but will not cut the mustard for the stories we will tell to the grand kids.
Yes, we do have the disaster of September 11, ought 1. That one is clearly a worthy story. What I don't want to hear is 'The depression of ought 9', 'The Attack of ought 9', or the 'Armegeddon of ought 9'. But, we do need something where we can show pictures of people walking across the Columbia River, Discovery of Lava people living in the earth's core, or small dogs acheiving the triple back flip.
Come on people, Lets get to it!
