Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.
This year marked the 60th
anniversary of her ascension
to the throne of the U.K, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, amongst sixteen other states. She is the only other royal besides Queen Victoria to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee.
The Summer Olympic Games. While they happen every four years, the Olympic Games are a time for the world to come together. With London in the background, the Fab Five, the U.S., female gymnastics team, left everyone amazed; Michael Phelps reached 22 medals, the highest all-time; and Usain Bolt proved to be the fastest man alive yet again. Women had a big role in these Olympics, as they were the first to host female athletes in every single sport.
Re-election of president Obama. After what seemed like an eternity of campaigning, an odd group of political characters, and a billion dollar campaign, President Obama defeated Mitt Romney on the sixth of November.
