Thanks Maha for pointing me to this post by Billmon. I keep telling my boys to take notice, that they are living in historic times. I really believe this to be true. When I was growing up, I had the persistent feeling that I had missed the big action - I was too young to go to Woodstock (my best friend's older sister went) and "hippie" was an archaic term by the time I graduated from high school. Now, I realize that I was right in the thick of it, and I wish I had paid closer attention. I'm not sure the boys really get it, but it's hard. I just hope that I can give them enough so that when they are older, they can look back and say, Yeah, I remember my mom talking about that.
