Day 109 ~ Stepping Back In Time

I love the fact that by simply putting in a DVD into the player, or even watching an era based series on t.v., one can go back in time and relive an era from long ago.  I especially enjoy the "history"  it all ~  the end of the 1950s through the first half of the 1960s was an amazing time not only for the United States, but to Americans themselves.

From the time Elvis and the Beatles first showed their faces on the Ed Sullivan Show, to the assassination of who some may consider one our nation's greatest presidents, John F. Kennedy,  This was an innocent era which not only ended on a sad note, who's soldiers were for the most part "stoned" for their participation in the war in Viet Nam...

Just as they say life changes us, well The United States has never been the same since.

There are so many things I like about that era, however I am happy to say that I was merely three years old by the time all of this was going on... but not to say that it would have been cool to have experienced some of the era as an adult... instead through the eyes of a just.  Just to have been able to seen the Rat Pack... wow!!  the history behind this era is amazing!!    

“Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do ‘em all together, I guess.”
-Elvis in 1956, talking about his way of moving on stage.

“Life goes on within you and without you”   ~  The Beatles 1960 
“If you do a good job for others, you heal yourself at the same time, because a dose of joy is a spiritual cure. It transcends all barriers.” ~ Ed Sullivan 

The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger - but recognize the opportunity.  ~ John F Kennedy Speech in Indianapolis, April 12, 1959

“I seriously doubt if we will ever have another war. This is probably the very last one.”  ~ Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War

So, the world is drunk and we're just the cocktail of the moment pally. One of these days everybody's gonna wake up with a heck of a hangover, down two aspirin and a glass of tomato juice and wonder what the hell all the fuss was about.    ~ Dean Martin 

Blessings to all!!
