Forty eight years ago today, The Beatles landed in New York (of course, they flew Pan Am).
If you are old enough to recall that occasion (and the mass hysteria that followed), where were you?
While watching them on the Ed Sullivan show, I recall being SO upset that no one could hear anything above the screaming fans! One thing’s for sure, though: They communicated a joyful, new sound to an international audience.
Yes, there was poverty, inequity, and political turmoil in many parts of the world then, as now. However, their music and optimism set the stage for people to unite. Not everyone chose to be a part of this “revolution.” but many of us did.
That’s not such a bad example, eh?
