Laughter is one of the great joys of life. But it’s hard to laugh when so many people are suffering. The world cannot exist solely on jokes. I do not feel like being funny today.
A person is molded by their experiences, by their family and friends and upbringing. I also believe that the culture of the times shapes us. Although my birth coincided with the birth of Rock and Roll, something for which I am forever grateful, I would have to say that the 60’s was the decade that affected my personality the most.
The 60’s was a turbulent, violent time. The Middle East was a hotbed of conflict; and wars could be found at many places across the globe. The Cold War was at its apex, nearly brining up to the brink of nuclear conflict. And people fought for equal rights, decency and fairness. Does this sound familiar?
