This is a day drenched in blood and infamy; the beginning of the end of that hippie-dippy feeling of safety and understanding that was fostered through then 60’s. Everything changed after the Manson Family killed those people; the world seemed a bit less light and a whole lot scarier. Whether you see this as the anniversary of a tragedy, a misunderstanding, or an injustice, it was a time that mattered. Whether you think it deserves attention or not, it was important. Whether you miss him or wish him a long stay in hell, no one can argue that that particular nightmare – it CHANGED things.
And that’s one more thing it has in common with this moment right now. It’s time to affect things, one way or another. Baptized in blood or just born of collective madness and desperate need to create, today we move forward.
I can think of no better day to start something beautiful, and no group of individuals I would rather have with me.
Rise, my Darlings.
Rise, and become.
