These people tell us that Bob Dylan spoke for the generation, while I personally don’t remember anyone listening to his music. Yoko Ono was a clown whose 15 minutes of fame expired around 1972.It may have defined the liberal awakening but life during that time was about so much more; so much better.
The great majority of baby boomers have spent their lives working, raising families, studying or defending their country while the effete leisure class had time to sit around coffee houses nostalgically looking back on their college antics and imagining them to be defining moments for the rest of us.
"O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, . . . in wrath remember mercy" (Habakkuk 3:2).
"Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?" (Psalm 85:6)
