I'm especially bitter today. don't mind me.
In 1969, the first men walked on the moon.
And now Bush is looking to send someone to Mars?
In 1964, the Civil Rights Act was amended to include gender.
Today, sexual preference?
In the 70's, abortion became legal in some states.
But now they're trying to take that right away.
Also in the 70's, Women, minorities, and gays increasingly demanded full legal equality and privileges in society and Affirmative action became a controversial policy.
In 1962, a spy plane identified long range missiles in Cuba and President John F. Kennedy readied troops to invade.
Atleast they actually found proof "weapons of mass destruction" beforehand.
In the 60's, problems in secondary schools initiated a return to the teaching of basic thinking skills.
Hold on, let me turn off the tv/video game i was watching/playing i don't think i heard you right...you mean to tell me that reading books and solving those pesky story problems are supposed to help me form basic thinking and communication skills? damn.
The 60's were a time for increased awareness of the environment.
Perhaps we've grown tired of that.
why are we still dealing with the same issues 30-40 years later?
the youth of the 60's and 70's are among the present leaders of the US. maybe that has something to do with it.
Maybe it's because as much as we would like to believe that we can "change the world" we can't. It is impossible to change the minds and behavior of everyone.
Maybe we should have payed attention in history class after your teacher told us "we learn about history so we won't make the same mistakes in the future".
Maybe we need to remove our heads from our asses.
please feel free to offer your explanation...i'm open to any.
the views and opinions expressed on this page are well...mine.
any above accusations have been made of the general public...not specificaly you, not your mother, father, brother, bestfriend, pet, etc.
