Happy 44th anniversary, Woodstock!

This event truly was, as billed, “three days of peace and music.” Everyone who was there — and millions who weren't — was affected by the beliefs in peace and love that blossomed from Woodstock.

Unfortunately, members of this generation will never know and understand that era's values unless their parents or grandparents instilled those beliefs. Today's children should research how almost “half a million strong” could hang together for three days in total harmony. We will never see anything of that magnitude happen again in this lifetime.

Next time someone flashes you the peace sign, think of the true meaning — peace.
