The pictures you see were taken late in the afternoon and show a nice peaceful and laid back environment, That has not always been the case. In 1965, I was just barely 22, this was a place of suffering and pain for many.I was still living in the protected environment in which I had grown up.
In 1985 OR 86 several of my High School friends and I had a little get together in Lewisville,Texas. Attending that get together was a dear friend, Sharon Worsham Cobb who said "We were raised in such a protected envioroment that we had no idea what the real world was like".
It was true, I had no idea. Reflecting back I wish I had been here in 1965, I should have been. You know, the old hind sight thing.On March 7th 20?? Jeanie and I will return to this location to honor those who did know what the real world was like.
I plan to have a great day, I hope you will join me.
