When did we wear flowers in our hair?

When we believed in the peace process
When two parties respectfully disagreed
When young adults believed in something other than money
When we still had a middleclass
When we played duck and cover in our classroom
When integrity meant something
When printer’s ink left a mark on a hand
When guys in Silicon Valley began to dream about making stuff in their garages
When $10 was almost valued at $10
Before mace, pepper spray, stun guns, plastic cuffs and traffic cams
When the water fountains were still segregated in the south
And, when an apple was an apple
