The Decade’s Most Iconic Images

2 Jan

If you click here you go visit a post on the “Huffington Post” site about the Most Iconic Images of 2000 – 2009.

I have never visited the Huffington Post site before so I’m not sure what the site is about…but the photos on that post brought back alot of memories of some major news events of the past ten years (not all of them good, unfortunately).

Here are a few images from that post:

The late Michael Jackson hanging his infant son over a railing; 2002 Nov 19

Former U.S. President Bush declaring the Iraq War as "Mission Accomplished"; 2003 May 1

Prisioner abuse at the Abu Ghaib Prison; 2003

The crash landing into the Hudson River that saved all passengers onboard; 2009 January 15

    It was a big tragedy. Thankfully we didn’t but where we were in the Philippines we noticed the change of weather at that time during the day. it was very different as we’ve been in the Philippines in December many times only the next day did we hear about the Tsunami news and my family was trying to contact and find where I was thinking I was in Thailand at that time.

      Yeah, that’s lucky you weren’t there.
      It looked really terrible on the TV news!

    Just checked out the website, id say the one thats iconic to me is the Tsunami. I remember that day so clearly, the weather itself… it must’ve been not meant to be when my husband & I could not get any seats to Sri Lanka and Maldives for our December holidays.

      Did you witness that big tsunami first-hand?
      It was a big tragedy!

      (By the way, 「津波」 (“Tsunami“) is a Japanese word.)
