I am a product of my era.
I was a product of my era. I grew up in the late 1960's and early 1970's. I went to sit-ins and participated in walk-outs. I got to vote when I turned 18 and drink alcohol at the local bars. (The voting was a good idea-the drinking at 18 maybe not so good.) I learned that you could change things even as an adolescent, if you stuck together. It was a very valuable thing to learn. I went to concerts but not many movies. One that I did see, Bonnie and Clyde, really had no socially redeeming valu. I did see almost all of the bands that were popular in concert. The music was great.
When I graduated from high school, we went to celebrate at my friends, we played Alice Coopers "Schools Out". (Forever!) When I got married for the first time I played The Moody Blues and Michael Oldfield to go down the aisle. When I had my daughter I was still playing rock and roll in the hospital room. For my divorce I had a rock and roll party. My friend and I were involved in Politics. When we had people over for get out the vote for whomever we plated Joni Mitchell or Joan Baez. It seems that no matter what the reason, you could alway find a rock and roll collection to go with the occasion. Rock and roll is still a part of my life as a senior. (Oh my gosh, did I really say that?)But now I have a lot of Clasical Music spinning on the DVD, too.
Wow! Rachel! Who knew?? I can certainly relate to the times. You need to post a few photos of you back then and insert them into your story. Have we ever changed!!
