To the editor,
It’s too bad that a reunion couldn’t have happened, that a venue couldn’t have been donated and that peace and love couldn’t live once again. It’s too bad that people in the industry and people with higher means than most couldn’t get together to make a beautiful event take place for all people and to remember what Woodstock was all about.
It’s really a truth being shown of where we stand as a people — broken and lost.
Our lives have been taken over by money, power, and greed. We should’ve been stronger and created a three-day extravaganza to celebrate music, peace and love.
I wasn’t born for the first event, but I know it was an awe-inspiring, creative, and spiritual time from my learning and research and by talking with others who had been involved with the 3 days of music, peace, and love.
I pray that we all understand how important it is to slow down, be thankful, and recognize.
History does repeat itself, so be mindful. Just as negative can happen, so can the positive. It’s what WE value, YOU value, as a people - is what we will celebrate and cherish.
My question is: why are we, as a people, not wanting to celebrate diversity, music, peace, and love? I’m sure there are many sides and debates to Woodstock, but can anyone disagree that, peace, love, and music were the basic foundation for Woodstock ‘69?
