I was born in 1961. I was raised in the San Francisco Bay area in the ’60s and ’70s when we had multiple militant groups like the Hells Angels and the Black Panthers. I was in 2nd grade in Oakland, CA when Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. I was 13 when Patty Hearst was kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army right next door in Berkeley (I lived right down the street from where she was kidnapped when I went to college there). Much of this took place with the backdrop of the Vietnam War, and all the societal negativity that surrounded it. It was a strange time then to grow up as a child. And it’s a strange time now to grow older. We are a country in pain. And probably more than a little tired. At times like this, I hear the cries for leadership. As if we expect someone to drop in our midst and lead us. Take us to a better place. Provide us with the courage to face “it” and tell us it’s going to be “OK.”… click link to continue
