The Summer of '69

To coin the Grateful Dead lyric; "What a long, strange trip it's been". A long, strange trip indeed. For 40 years.

Take pause, it's unbelievable too so many. Especially, to those who would question if there were any brain cells remaining to recapture the long term memory of one milestone summer, within one milestone year.

A gathering of bodies on a remote farmland and a gathering of eyes on a remote point in the universe converged on one single week of July 1969 and the world was never the same since.

Woodstock and man's first walk on the moon. Will we ever experience another legendary set events like that again?
