1990s - Random

In 1990, September 11, "A NEW WORLD ORDER" is spoken by George Bush Sr. Operation Desert Storm started in 1991. The Los Angeles riots arose in 1992. The World Trade Center was bombed in 1993. Nelson Mandela was elected president of South Africa in 1994. O.J. Simpson was found not guilt in 1995. Dolly the Sheep was cloned in 1996. Titanic premiered in theaters and Princess Diana died in 1997. Bill Clinton was impeached and Michael Jordan won his 6th NBA title in 1998. John F. Kennedy Jr died in 1999.

I've dubbed the '90s The Clinton Nineties. I turned 14 years old in 1999, I grew up in that last decade of the 20th century. My memories include RANDOM MOVIES and we (as a family) were mostly fans of Nintendo video games. I grew up in a trailer in a ghetto in Oregon. I would run around playing with other kids climbing trees, playing tag, house, wrestling, etc. I started learning how to use computers. I started learning how to ride bikes. I remember watching Star Trek, Star Wars, Full House, cartoons, Power Rangers, and don't forget the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
