David George Ballard III

“A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?”
― Albert Einstein

     “I was a freshman in high school and she was in eighth grade when the Beatles hit. There was just something about that time: there was folk music, the Civil Rights Movement, the sexual revolution, Woodstock, the Kingston Trio, the anti-Vietnam War protests, and a lot of excellent live music. Most guys wanted a guitar and to play in a garage band. It was a period of six or seven years that was completely different. I graduated from high school in 1967. The people who graduated just a year before us in 1966 were considered old—a whole different generation!”     “I recently went to our high school reunion. I ran into a guy who had a locker next to me, but we never really talked a lot back then—just ‘hi‘ and ‘how are you’. We sat down and talked for four hours! And he said, ‘You know, I don’t have as much in common with the younger guys I work with, than with you because we went through those times together.’ There’s definitely a connection between the people who grew up during that time. You meet someone, and—without even realizing why—you click right away because of that common experience: the history you share that you don’t have with a lot of others.”     “But I think—I can’t even tell you why, but I feel it—that the group of kids that are just coming in now will be like our generation. They’re not going to care about money as much as education, the person next to them, all the inequalities that exist, and bettering the world.”
