... the year when the King last struck a chord on stage, a year of turmoil, a year of terrorism, a year when all the world powers talked about disarming, while secretly testing dozens over dozens of nuclear weapons. It was a year when the world ached for stability and the military yearned for conflict. It was a year of technical advance, a year personal computing took off towards rapid expansion. It was the year the Internet protocol was born.
1977 was a year of hope. 1977 was the last year.
