24. Thanks...
I believe there was a revolution here in the 1960's and it was crushed in 1968 with the Assasinations of Dr. King and Bobby Kennedy, and the ascension of Nixon to the Whitehouse.

What would our world be like if Kennedy became president in 1968 and MLK continued his work? I know we would have been out of Vietnam a lot quicker and I suspect that more effort would have been made to fight the "War on Poverty."

This was one of the most tragic eras in our history. So much promise and hope shattered by violence. Look at what came after. Look what continues....
