A quest to turn the tide after decades of storms.
Our recent storms didn’t start in 2020 or 2016. They started decades ago in the 1960s – a whirlwind of threatened nuclear catastrophe, then police dogs and rednecks terrorizing civil rights marchers down south, then Vietnamese children fleeing from napalm flames. Then draft notices to go to Vietnam to “fight commies.” A small town boy started by supporting rightist Goldwater against the “peace candidate” Johnson, but rapidly changed in the face of the civil rights and anti-war movements, and started a quest that hasn’t ended yet.
