Sixties hippie culture is alive an well in many of the hearts of today's teen agers. My mom thinks its a hoot. She remembers everyone in her college dorm tie dying sheets and then taking a wooden stamp and decorating the tie dyed sheets with peace signs. That way they could either sleep on the peace sign sheets or hang them out the window in support of the protest marches against the War or in favor of civil rights. Somehow she says it just blended all together like the tie-dyed sheets.
While it's hard to believe that we could actually be nostalgic for those times, it is understandable to want the passion of big dreams that were alive then. JFK said we're going to the moon (and coming back) and a generation followed him. They raced fast cars on the beach at Daytona, drank beer, and danced to the Beach Boys. MLK inspired thousands to march for their freedom and others. And then the War came and got big and it drowned out everything - except for the plea of young generation Give Peace a Chance.
