30 years, 30 events, countless memories


Where were you when the Challenger exploded? When Dolly the Sheep was cloned? When the Berlin Wall came crashing down?


Over the last 30 years, news events like the ones above and many others have shaped the world and had a lasting impact on our lives. CNN was there to cover them all. And even though you may not have been there, I bet you remember vividly what you were doing when the World Trade Center was attacked, or when you first learned that Michael Jackson had died. We all do.


Those shared memories are at the heart of the latest CNN iReport project called CNN30: Were you there?


We’re inviting you to open your shoeboxes and photo albums to help CNN build a timeline of significant news events from the past 30 years by sharing images and memories. We hope that combining personal snapshots with original news footage will shine a new light on the moments that changed our lives as well as our world.
