Dark Decade of the 60's

I can’t say I was part of the 60’s, nor do I have a special connection to the historical events. Yet, individuals like my parents lived this decade. According to them, the 60’s were a time of contemplation and global awareness. A time of love and acepptance, and a time when transcendence thru drug use was the only way for people to escape the politics of goverment.

There's another side of the 1960's that many would rather forget. Some people call the 60's the "Decade of Death", when Martin Luther King, Bobby and JFK were assasinated, and civil rights activists were murdered by white supremacists.
