Historical tragic events are easiest to link to. Was there a time you helped someone do something because they couldn't do it? Or did someone pass away and you consoled the living? Think of any friends or families you have that have special needs and what you did to help them too. Then look at some events in the United States at that same time where people got hurt and other people rushed to help. The most obvious historical events are:
March 2003 beginning of War with Iraq
Boston Marathon Bombing April 16th 2013
related shooting: April 18th 2013
hope that helps!
