What moment in history do you wish you could have witnessed?

If you could go back--or go to the future--what do you want to witness?

Is it the moment of the Big Bang?
Is it the moment Eve ate the apple?

What do you think?

    Dec 16 2011: Sojourner Truth's "Ain't I a Woman?" speech!

    Again, it's not the most important moment in history, but it would be truly beautiful to see!

    (for anyone who's unfamiliar with this speech, here's a version of Alice Walker reading it out... (I would give you the original but it was in 1851 and so therefore wasn't immediately loaded onto YouTube haha) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsjdLL3MrKk )
