You can remember waking up to fresh bottles of milk on the porch. Standing to attention every morning in school with your hand over your heart saying the pledge of alleigance (one nation under God) without the controversy. Bobby socks and penny loafers.Freedom to play outside until the street lights came on , without my parents being worried about predators taking me.Cars without airconditioning, bench seats in the front and riding without a seat belt!

When you remember telephones that you had to pick the receiver up and ask the operator to 

dial the number.

If you had posters of The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin.

I remember protests over the Vietnam "Conflict."I saw lots of classmates go to War in Nam.My ex-Husband was stationed at San Diego,the Sailors were proud to go serve.It was hard to see Our loved ones go to War.People called Me a War Widow.I was a Young bride and could not stand the name calling,I came back to Illinois.While My Husband was Fighting to keep Americans safe,I worked in a submarine factory.Both of Us tried to do Our part for America,and would do it all over again.God Bless America.
