It was a Friday & Beth (nee Marybeth) & I were hitchhiking to Washington. She remembers us staying a day or 2 in Boston to learn pacifist techniques. Did we have sleeping bags? I think we simply threw ourselves on the ground on the Mall, waiting for the next day's demonstration. I don't remember seeing any of the bands or speeches. Beth woke up smiling & the young man who happened to be sleeping next to her was smitten. That was Wayne, one of the Air Force hippies I met that day. My life changed forever. I found my people, my place, confirmation of my values. They are still my people, my place, my values, my friends, my soul.

We had brought sleeping bags with us because I remember Wayne and I zipping ours together. Also, don't you remember John Denver and Peter, Paul and Mary?

Yes? Maybe? I remember there were speakers & musicians but not really what we did all day long.
Confirmation of sleeping bags! I had never even wondered that till just then. xoxo
