The Vietnam War, the Rock Music, the Race Riots, the Drugs, and the Space Race amde the news and the history books, but for most of us it was just living. Going to school, going to a basketball game with friends, trying to get a date and all that. There was a spirit of excitement and change that pervaded the society in a way no other decade has seen. The generation gap was a big deal. Our parents were products of the depression and WW II and although maybe tolerant could never be part of the changes happening. It was a great time to be alive, but then isn't any time.
