So, today, 14th January 2012 is the 45th anniversary of the Human Be-In in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. Six months later we would have the Summer of Love. I put it to you – isn’t it time for another?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful for tens of thousands of people to come together in peace, no Police. Share music, fun, experiences. Art. Poetry. Oh how we laughed at the hippies. And some still do. Oh how we would envy that peace now. Wear flowers in your hair. Colours in your clothes.
You may have heard of Peace Day. The campaign for a global truce on one day – September 21st 2012. That campaign can then become two days of truce, then three? How about a Global Human Be-In where we all share something with a stranger. A handshake. A flower. Food. A hot/cold drink.
Then one Global Human Be-In Day can become two, three? You never know – we might change something at last.
You can say, I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one.
