“The cry of ‘Flower Power’ echoes through the land. We shall not wilt. Let a thousand flowers bloom.” Abbie Hoffman
Many of us watched this week as events of the Boston Marathon unfolded. Scarier still is to think what happens every day around the world. It’s just this time it happened a bit closer to home which always seems to have a greater impact on me. According to wikipedia, Allen Ginsberg coined the phrase “Flower Power” in 1965 as a “means to transform war protests into peaceful affirmative spectacles.” Forty eight years later and here we are today, still exchanging bullets and bombs instead of flowers. Is it too late for a little “flower power?” I hope it’s never too late to share flowers of peace.
