Once a Hippie…


I think that in the 60s we were Idealistic and filled with optimism.  I know I completely believed in Peace, Love and Rock & Roll. (Still do.)

I know that the world is coming close to the same place we were in back in the 60s — the Edge of Destruction — and it’s important for those of us who are old enough to remember the lyrics or poems and the music that helped us make changes in the world, to remind people of the changes that are needed today.

We need today’s young people to do what we did:

To Speak Out, and March Out and Peace Out.

If you believe in something, if you believe something needs to be changed, Speak.  March.  Help people.  Write about it.  Be heard, be seen, make the world the world you feel in your heart.

Together, perhaps we can, once again, pull back from the Edge of Destruction.

Namaste,

Barbara
