I am 27, I am too young to even be close to remembering anything about the original woodstock. I wasn't even born. My parents went, at least one of
them I know of anyway.
I recently saw a documentary on woodstock on VH1 classic. Not on purpose mind you, I was doing something else at the time and stopped the channel
there and it changed my way of thinking forever.
For the three hours I sat and watched it, listened to the political views of the people involved, the reaction of elders around the concert, and the
overwhelming show of togetherness, human kindness, spirituality, and harmony. I then had a thought. Why can this happen only once? Over 500,000 people
attended according to the documentary, and for three days, it was music, love and peace amongst one another.
All ages, genders, skin colors, nationalities, and religions joined in celebration and protest of the war at the time.
Why not now? Where are the people standing up against those corrupt individuals who deserve to be ousted and pay for their crimes against this great
Where is the spirituality that was once so strong now? Small protests will always happen, but the overwhelming harmony that was woodstock I believe is
long dead and will never be again.
People are too concerned with their cell phones, their SUV's, their starbucks, how much gas prices are, and many more. People walk around feeling
alone in this world, that everyone is against the little guy, and no one would listen to them if they said anything...............................
Yet they claim to have all the answers. Where is our human connection?
Woodstock 2 was a disaster. Teens burning and destroying the area just because they thought it was a good time. There was no cause, there was no
spirituality and no harmony among that bunch.
Will this nation or this world ever unite in such a way again to make their voices heard and just say:
Give peace a chance?
