It was Thursday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 10, 2002). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of October people in US were listening to A Moment Like This by Kelly Clarkson. In UK The Long And Winding Road / Suspicious Minds by Will Young & Gareth Gates was in the top 5 hits. Hero, directed by Yimou Zhang, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2002 while Nothing Is Impossible by Christopher Reeve was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Boomtown. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Asheron's Call 2: Fallen Kings or Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
