Do You Remember

Do You Remember

Do you remember?
Living through the death of a president
A year of assassinations
Fighting a war no one wanted
Heroes spat upon when they came home
Peace finally found when American turned and ran
Black and white television
Only three channels from which to choose
Students massacred while walking to class
A British invasion that forever changed music
Healthy tobacco and saccharine
Sold through commercials and ads
Pollution filled our lungs
The death of a princess on a lonely road
Injections in schools to prevent disease
Nuclear test in the Nevada desert
Air raid drills just in case
Half of the world never trusted the other
One president resigned while another gave away cheese
The law finally made all kids equal
People stating their thoughts arrested and jailed
Locked away so that no one would ever hear
After living through all of this only one question remains
How did we ever survive?
