Crucial history of the 00's...

What are the key events for Americans this decade (not meaning to be exclusive, only to prioritize)?

1. 9-11 and the subsequent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
2. the world economic crisis, sparked by the American housing crisis

Those are the two biggies that come to mind. A lot of other things follow or associate with these. Am I missing anything major?

I think the economic crisis will change our way of life and influence our future more than 9/11 and the wars that followed. The causes of the economic crisis exposes the greed, fraud, consumerism and the worship of money and materialism that dominates the planet. Bankrupt countries, businesses and people will certainly be forced to change the way they live. It will be interesting to see where this will lead us to.
