the decade ... according to those who were born at its beginning

As the decade comes to an end, it is interesting to get a child's point of view.

After watching the video below I asked my son the same questions...
He said the biggest news stories of the decade were that we bombed the moon and that Barack Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize.

He didn't know what a terrorist was. And his biggest fear is tarantulas.
