Boomer Talk: Those were the days ...

(Continued)

I wonder how much of this talk of terror, always in the media, impacts our impressionable children. Domestic terrorists invade our schools and movie theaters, the malls and our own beloved runners marathon. With this constant bombardment, we are all affected, whether we consciously know it or not.

Wouldn’t it be nice to go back to those times when we held high hopes for a better world? If only we might return to those days when, like the flower children, we believed peace and love were the only direction to go. Some of us hold tightly, still, to that vision.
