Now that summer has been over, I actually reflect on fact that 2009 Summer marks the 40th Summer Anniversary of 1969 -and what a summer that was!
It was a doozie if you look at it from my point and things I’m interested in.
Had we been older so, I believe they would have noticed -and appreciated -what that time meant socially and historically, mind you. Therefore they don’t remember much of it from an adult’s standpoint. Her death was a lesson in what substances usually can mean to us.
Like, Judy Garland died of an accidental overdose of the barbiturate/sleep aid Seconal on June She was usually 47 -two years older than I am now -and yet made show business history in those shorter years in concerts, and happened to be, movies, television and also radio arguably greatest gay male icon of all time.
I work with clients every now and once more whose lives are saved, are, improved and in addition thriving thanks to prescription helpful benefits medication.
Judy’s legacy is an example of how these medications must oftentimes be treated with even reverene, respect and lest they make over our lives. Bless those drag queens throwing rocks! Her death was always rumored to have fueled gay anger men in Stonewall which, 1969, and in June and Riots marks ceremonial modern beginning gay rights movement. Her existence is probably an example is that you don’t necessarily ought to live pretty long to make a lasting impression on world. With all that said… Oftentimes a good loss like Judy’s death, may be an inspiration. This is where it starts getting practically serious, right? Gay men re down barriers during those nights of rioting in a city of New York and paved the way for a more, respected, legitimate, dignified and mainstream existence than ever before.
Probably an otherwise darkest events sunny summer were murders over 3 nights perpetrated by youn gang under influence of crazed the influence Charles Manson.
This event, chronicled in the book Helter Skelter, and others has not lost its macabre appeal in will kill for him shows that mind control is a pretty real, dangerous thing and underscores why a good questioning of authority -whether it’s ward Charles Manson or George Bush -is a good thing. Then once more, fact that one evil, insane or even man as anyone has ever been, could influence others to literally commit murders on his behalf on innocent people, boggles the sane mind. For instance, Manson Murders were as well an example of collective concept trauma.
Native Angelenos will rather often tell how noone in LA was rather as trusting after those events.
They lost some innocence.
Los golden summers Angeles should in no circumstances be identical. People locked their doors. Essentially, apparently not until 9/11/01 will such as big group of Americans feel collective grief caused by one little wellmeaning group’s evilly self indulgent malacious acts with such shared trauma. Merely think for a moment. They viewed others with suspicion. That said, this event showed us that while we probably usually try to love our fellow Man, we usually have to reserve merely a little fight or flight in our back minds to guard and protect that, that evil exists and even ourselves strengthening mind with ability for objective, critical thinking has always been a powerful ol that may be a part of any youthful man’s or woman’s emotional/intellectual/community development, lest they be at the mercy of an influential madman.
1969 Summer brought us the landing on the moon in July.
While meaning and that liberation festival meant a challenge to status quo -status quos like sexism, main, homophobia and racism conservatism with which I grew up that we have usually make a habit to eschew at nearly any turn, even after that,, By the way I understood that expression.
Sure, drugs used to self-assured abuse was usually a huge problem, and they treat clients for these kinds of issues each day in my practice. With lousy sound quality coming from huge networks’ connection to the lunar capsule, I remember watching a lot of hours looking at our kind of dim TV screen. While seeing news coverage of that event has fueled my admittedly rabid attraction to guys with long hair, I think to this day. Back consequently, the most momentous occasion on TV every year for me was the annual showing Wizard of Oz I have a big affinity for another event of Summer, 1969 -the Woodstock Music Festival.
With the chilly War, I think when we see how awfully conservative things got in 80′s, greed has been good, conspicuous consumption, racism return and homophobia, AIDS/HIV, and the rough Right turn in country under leadership of murderous the leadership Darth Vader, we will do well to keep in mind the 60′s and 70′s, and the momentous summer of 1969, that meant a lot to a lot of. It was pretty impossible to see the grim, ‘unsuccessful resolution’ images, yet they understood being that my all the family was gathered around the TV set, including my grandparents who were visiting, that this was a momentous occasion.
