I was in 12th grade, sitting in an English class on the morning of November 22, 1963 when someone burst in the room with the news that the president of the united States has been shot. On that day, the PROMISE of CAMELOT died. And something died within many of us that day as well as the president. A deep sadness for a vision of an equitable humnanity.
I think MANY of us young people at least knew in our hearts that the vision would go undergraound for decades. Even our brilliant young musicians felt it too. For me the SOUNDS of SILENCE by Simon and Garfunkel was an incredible testimony to this generational distress. Our music changed.
It has now been over 50 years. And there is a glimmer of a hope to a return to the VISION of a hopeful positive future is gleaming in our eyes – IF we can just take it!
Please take a moment to enjoy (I’ve still gotta learn how to embed in wordprss)
Blessings on you all.
