As we get older – we seem to become more set in our ways!
However – I am from perhaps the most vivid generation to ever exist!
THE 60’s – growing up in both turmoil and a revolution of –
PEACE – LOVE and COLORS!
Of all human life!
We had new music – and new Icons – JFK – MLK – and not so liked –
RMN – on the political horizon.
This was the era of PEACE- LOVE and HOPE –
But also of Guns – Protests – Marches and death.
And – the outcome – my generation won against the above.
War came to a end – the peace sign prevailed –
All colors were accepted by majority –
And RMN who was on the horizon –
was sent packing in disgrace in the 70’s.
The Hippies eventually for the most part – became mainstream
And today – they still flash those Peace signs –
They are older now – walking slowly –
They have experience and growth
They are still teaching generations to Love –
And once again – are standing – standing for democracy.
Now known as also Baby Boomers – casting a eye at the Capital.
Putting back on those tie dyed shirts in their minds.
We had become somewhat “Silent”
But – “WE” are moving once again –
As it was in the 60’s – turmoil has once again raised it’s ugly head.
A generation that lead the nation with protest out of a war
no one wanted –
A generation that evolved with human kind in mind
A generation that promotes Peace – Love & kindness
Yes – we are old – we are set in our ways
We are not entitled – we are not elite –
WE ARE WE – a product of the ’60’s –
As it was said by a Nation at war in the 40’s
You have awoken a sleeping giant –
A giant that walked the streets in the 60’s
One who promotes Love – Peace –
And in my case – God – Family and Church.
We stand together – as one –
We work behind the scenes to promote humankind
And justice for all is prevailing
You see – all those years ago
We helped usher in a new dawn
And we still to this day
Believe in Peace – Hope – Love
and in our case
Family- Church- Country and that peace sign.
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
