Stories From Woodstock 1969

I was driven down a road from which i would never return the same. I grew up on 60's and 70's music even though I was born in 1974. This music resonated through me like never before...I still have much of it on vinyl to this day. But on this bright sunny day I never thought I could feel the vibe and the soul to a place and had a flashback. I closed my eyes to open standing in middle of the playing fields and i'm feeling the vibes of love and peace and the best music of all time. I had travelled many times to the catskills and never knew of this music holy ground that I passed without knowledge. A quick right off of interstate 17 and I was living musical history and in awe of the greatness of the event that was here and I just sat in amazement. I ever since thought this land should be protected as a historical landmark. A few years ago heard about the sale of the property and it felt like that historical landmark was being sold off for some new resort and it hurt down to the bones knowing that my kids when they grow up would not get to see this great place and get to soak it all in. This event changed history and subcultures and just the way people look at the world. This place had to be protected just as any landmark that contributed to american history as any other building, but with a greater and much larger effect not only on the usa but on music worldwide...These Titans of Music...and their 500,000 fans came to listen , love and change the world. Never would another event ever come close to what this place which many consider a holy ground of music and music history ever exsist in any other place. I came and saw and left and thought still in awe and I remain that way till this day because woodstock 69 was a innocent and magical time...can never be recreated and must never be forgotten...we the people showed we could co exsist in peace love and harmony and in some intense numbers. God Bless those there before me and those there after me as I felt honored to be able to be there and breathe in the history and close my eyes and take me back to what I think was a better time in american history when there was more love than hate, when no lines or fences divided us, when we all stood side by side but together as one, the others since then have been a disgrace to the historical 1969 Woodstock, hopefully the next show will prove that the love and peace and music can be enough for those enlightened enough to respect the festivals anniversary and history of what woodstock was really about in 1969. I would love to be part of this historical music event just out of the love of music and especially now peace and love for it is something that or world lacks in currently and is in need of a desperate infusion of love and peace and music to bring it all together.
