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?

    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 )
