The human told me that when she was young the country was going through a transition.
The times they were a changing...
She told me how you stopped a war, fought for civil rights, started recycling and the peace corps.
You sent a man to the moon!
It was a time of great optimism...
There was a desire to embrace the world and all of it's diversity...
Forty five years later a lot of those very same people are now isolationists and intolerant.
They have become judgmental and angry.
They want to take their country back.
They want to make America great again...
Mean while over in Britain, they have voted to leave the EU.
Everybody wants to build walls and reinstate boarders.
Somehow that's the answer to everything that's wrong.
Personally I can't figure out what the heck changed. I asked a few people and heard the same thing;
"we grew up". Pardon my French but that sounds like a load of crap.
I think it's a shame that you did all that work and fought so hard just to throw it all away because it didn't turn out exactly the way you thought it would be.
For those of you who are old enough to remember, here's a little something to remind you what you were fighting for and if you who are to young to remember, you should take a listen too;
Maybe with a little deeper thought and the right words and music, it will all come back to you.
In the end the world is only what you make it...
Have a wonderful Sunday!
