court cases- how do these affect your life

How do these court cases affect your life?

Tinker vs. Des Moines
Roe vs. Wade
New Jersey vs. TLO
Miranda vs. Arizona
Brown Board of Education

I know what these court cases are but I am not sure how they affect my life.

Here is how to analyze: What would your life be like without that decision.?

Here are some thoughts.
Brown- Would there have been segregation still? would the CivilRights law of the 1964 have been passed? What would life be like if we didn't have that?

Roe vs Wade - Before that law, I had a best friend jump off a building to kill herself because she thought she was pregenant (this was before birth control pills too). Would you have lost any friends to suicide over this?

Miranda- hom many of your friends would have been coerced into confessions, whether they were guilty or not, without Miranda.

and so on.
