First off...my kids were normal kids..just .look at the first photo, will ya?....see? All looks normal, doesn't it...BUT, wait... The parents of these two....where...yep...HIPPIES!!
As Hippies they wanted to change the world,and social values of the times, you know....things like civil rights and, racial equality were very important..those two kids heard 'bout it every single day....that was our normal talk at home.
And, my two kids came from mixed-racial Hippie parents. It was normal and accepted ideas to all of us.
Now, I remember what a ' threat, and troubling'' these very ideas where for MY parents way back when...it was scary and we didn't even think about telling my parents about our marriage, until after the fact. This was in the '60's It took several years for our parents to feel comfortable with my first husband and we were totally accepted to them....but, that time DID come...so, they changed along with the rest of the world. By becoming the feared or so called enemy....understanding and loving it...it.created change..
Cool.The world has changed...just like we HIPPIES intended...everybody wins with thoughts f kindness, fairness and equally. Music was included and a part of it all. .
I can see that my very open minded children have expanded these ideas further than I ever imagined in the '60's. Just the way it should be...Yep, I'm very proud of my children, and the way they both are lights to the world and evolution of the planet. Jan
