The Hippie

I was born too late to be a real hippie. In the 60s and 70s I was only a child, but I remember wearing long paisley dresses, layers of bracelets and headbands. I wish I had been older. A world where people championed free love and the pursuit of peace and justice, seems like the perfect fit for me.

When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.
― Fred Rogers
