Peace and Love was the sign of the flower child
In the sixties, the young were passive not wild
They believed in peace, love, - giving, and sharing
“Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, ”
“The feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.” Aristotle Wise
words from a wise philosopher
A nation born from war, for the “purpose” of establishing freedom
A nation divided in war, in an “attempt” to fulfill the goal of freedom
Ever since I was a child I would hear my father every so often say “I see said the blind man.” being young when I first heard him say this I kind of took it like it was some kind of joke, and really didn’t give it that much thought. My father died in 1985 today when I look back in time and ponder on those words my father spoke all those years I tried to unravel the phrase I’ve heard so often.
What did he really mean by saying “I see said the blind man? ” Was he talking about all of us in general the people who make up our society? Have we all been somewhat blind in life? How many times have we walked by a bum, or some poor soul who couldn’t find his role in society and only looked at the surface? Perhaps we seen a grubby exterior and judged accordingly. On the other hand, perhaps some of us had what we considered an open mind and had a philosophy of our own, we wouldn’t judge but rather say to ourselves “hey if that’s the life this person chooses fine.
He made it very clear - he said I have a dream
That my little children may walk in freedom
Let their laughter and joy sparkle and gleam
As the Lord looks down from his kingdom
