A Kaleidoscope of Memories

STORY BY: Linda Goldwater
YEAR: 1968
LOCATION: Montreal, QC

Linda was a baby boomer born in 1953, a product of Dr. Benjamin Spock and Gerber baby food. She remembers being in Montreal at the height of the protests against the Vietnam War. Sitting in a park, she and others sang "We Shall Overcome". and other folk songs that feature in BOOM. Like a kaleidoscope, the play brought back many images from her life, pulling them all together, and making her realize what a special time she lived in. Thanks for sharing, Linda.
