3Hurricane Katrina

Well, I wouldn't exactly call it a major event, although, it did leave a huge impact on the world. It changed our way of resources and showed an ability of working together. I'm sure in some ways it can be a major event. It led the help of many people to work together to help the community.

This is a major event tots

Think about it, think about the millons of dollers spent helping New Orleans and how much this effected our country! Hurricane Katarina changed everything, mainly our responce to how to react to a natural desaster.

4Election of Barack Obama

This should be higher than Michael Jackson dies... I think michael Jackson dies should definitely be high up but this should be higher.

He was the first african american president! Huge event that should be recognized more.

I think we choose the right guy to be our president :) also I am a donkey so I look up to president Obama

Because he's the first ever Africa-American President of U.S. and I think no matter what is your color you have ability to lead the country! - ethellelism

5Saddam Hussein Captured

Yep, I agree. This was significant. - HezarioSeth

6Haiti Earthquake

The Haiti earthquake killed many people and destroyed many homes luckily lots of countries chipped in to help by bringing them food and water it is a natural disaster.

This was a HUGE deal. SO many people died and all around the world people came together to help. This was such a major event. Why is this so low on the list?

This was a big deal

7Tsunami in East Asia

It's an huge tsunami and all the place that eat the tsunami has been changed for the good of the peaple so I think that the tsunami is a dangerous attak from the sea.

8Pluto.No longer a planet.

No longer a planet to the human science. But something can't be denied from what it is, it is like you kick out somebody from the family.
Pluto is considered a dwarf planet from 2006 but it's still a planet... - MatrixGuy

It is still a planet. I think they just said that it wasn't because kids were getting it confused with Mickey mouse's dog.

It was sort of an important event. - funnyuser
