A review of Life’s 2000-2009: The Decade that Changed the World (2009)
(Rating 4 of 5)
At the end of 2009, Life released their decade issue capturing the major moments of the first decade of the 20th century. This decade led off with the most controversial presidential election since 1876, it would end with the inauguration and first year of America’s first African-American president. It was a time where the peace that was result of the end of the Cold War, gave way to the horrors of September 11 and the ‘War on Terror’ that would consume the decade. This decade saw both the Red and White Sox end their long championship drought; same-sex marriage became a legal possibility, and longstanding regimes came to an end.
This review was originally longer however I started to go into a long rant about how my life sucked in this decade, I guess my cognitive dissonance is too severe to discuss this decade.
The quality of the structure of the project is high nevertheless. There are a lot of bad memories here but the work itself is well done.
