A totally awesome 60's retrospective!

My sister sent this to me and it captures the 60's like nothing I've seen in a looooong time! It was a great era to grow up in!

If you remember the 60's, were you really part of the 60's?

I call shenanigans.

Not sure I get the question. I was born in 1956, so yes, I remember the '60's well. One everlasting memory is watching the Beatles LIVE in 1964 on the Sullivan show! I also remember being in Yosemite with my family in 1961, and seeing a huge military chopper flying overhead...with JFK aboard!

You didn't have to be stoned to be part of the 60's. At least not in the first 1/2.

Yeah it was a great era to grow up in Terry. Thanks for sharing.

Haha *now* i get maestro's post! No, that was the 70's for me! (the era of the "dime bag", cigarettes at 55 cents a pack, and of course gasoline rationing!)

Dime bag?

I guess inflation was hitting the US pretty hard in those days. We were still good for a nickel bag north of the boarder.

The thing I can't help but think when seeing videos promoting a seemingly golden age, is that the people who are the products of that age are those that have created the current age. People who were kids in the 60s are now the TV executives and lawyers, they are the ones making violent TV programs and encouraging others to sue over petty disputes.

Guess they were not so innocent... I can't understand why everybody make the sixties seem so great, even people who were not alive during the time, like some kids at my school. I think some just need to move on.

Well they also created their OWN age. If anything, it's the hippies from the 60's and radical leftists who are trying to destroy what made this country great! Btw, who's making all the ultra-violent VIDEO games that glorify murder and cop killing? 50 year olds? Haha no way! It's the 20 and 30 somethings doing that.

Right on!

Every age has its violence hatred and fear which can be attributed to the citizens of the previous generation. Pick your decade, you'll find atrocities brought about by people who were kids three or four decades before. What is the significance?

I'll bet the majority of the peace/love kids of the 60s are still advocating peace and love today.

Haha maybe we can get them to go "advocate peace and love" in, say, Red China, Iran, South Korea, Venezuela and Cuba for starters? Oh no wait...they'll be murdered by those governments. Better if they just do what they usually do and go on foreign soil to trash America.
