Baby Boomers – List Of Famous Events That Shaped Their Lives

The 'Me Generation' or the Baby Boomers questioned existing political views, social stance and discriminatory laws in higher education besides channeling their creative energies towards boosting economic prosperity for the nation as they emerged successful in their chosen field through being over-achievers and leaders.

The year 1946 began with a bang for the baby boomers with some of the nation's biggest moments including Churchill's warnings about the 'iron curtain' of the Soviet controlling Eastern Europe; the UN's first general assembly, philanthropist, John D. Rockefeller donating his wealth to a New York-based UN headquarter and the Nuremberg war crimes being carried out, which resulted in 12 Nazis being sentenced to death.

Mahatma Gandhi, the charismatic Indian leader and advocate of peace and brotherhood was assassinated in 1948; communists in Czechoslovakian took over control of the land, the Marshall Plan was ratified, which approved of $ 17 billion being used for the aid of Europeans and Israel gave shelter to over 200,000 European refugees.

The following year witnessed the rise of communist power in China and its nationalists fleeing to Taiwan, the NATO being established and Israel becoming part of UN; Apartheid was officially declared as the governmental policy of South African, which was a feat for the global community that chose equality over racial discrimination.

The 1950's lot of baby boomers saw North Korea invading South Korea, Chinese communist forces taking over Tibet and President Truman and Alger Hiss being condemned on charges of perjury. The next year, the American Congress passed its 22nd Amendment allowing 2nd terms for a President while Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were convicted for passing on US nuclear to Soviet Union and President Dwight Eisenhower was elected to power the year after; the same year (1952) Princess Elizabeth was crowned queen of Great Britain and the U.S constructed Nautilus, its first nuclear submarine. 1953 came with its fair share of political upsets and victories, like Nikita Khrushchev winning after the death of Josef Stalin in the Soviet Union and Josef Tito being elected as the new Yugoslavian President; of course the execution of convicted spies, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg made headlines too while a laudable new branch, the U.S. Health and Human Services was also created.

1954 highlights included a Supreme Court verdict of racial discrimination in educational institutions being unconstitutional, Senator McCarthy conducting enquiries into the Army's communist infiltration and subsequently declaring it on national TV; '55 saw Martin Luther King, Jr., leading the 1st U.S. civil rights society and WW-II allies signing a treaty for restoring Austria's independence.

The re-election of President Eisenhower made news in 1956 as did Israel's invasion of Sinai Peninsula, Fidel Castro starting off the Cuba revolution; ' was no less eventful: Eisenhower presented his 'Doctrine,' the Soviet Union brought in the space age via Sputnik and the last of the baby boomer years, 1958, recorded the US launching its first satellite, Explorer I while NASA was established and so was the United Arab Republic (with the coming together of Egypt, Sudan and U.S Marines intervention in Lebanon).

Thus, baby boomers sure grew up in interesting times.
