The Early 1960s - A Time Of Innocence

By the mid sixties , the Korean War , the Cold War , the very real threat of Nuclear War ,  the Viet Nam War ,and the strong arm tactics used against  Blacks , protesters ,college students , and Native people were quickly wearing out the fantasy of the perfect life our parents had imagined when the Second World War was put behind them.  The world appeared to be spinning out of control. This insanity had to stop.

Who was right? Who was wrong?  Things were not so simple anymore.

This was one of the most eventful times in our history and a time where we had a lot of change. I wasn't around until it was all over, but it was still fresh in everyone's minds.
