It was 50 years ago today in the small upstate New York town of Woodstock where more than 400,000 young people came for three days of music, peace and love. This week we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock and all it came to represent: love and peace triumphing over hatred and war, everyone’s sharing the earth in peace. It was the age of Aquarius.
Sadly the spirit of Woodstock didn’t last. We live in a world where love and peace are in short supply, but that shouldn’t stop us from trying to be the best we can.
