Richie Havens opened up the festival as its first performer. This song speaks as loud as it did back then. Where did it all go wrong? Where did the time go? The world was not supposed to be this way. Peace? Freedom? Equality? We seem to be fighting the same wars over and over.
To all my brothers and sisters around the world – black, white yellow, blue green….. Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Christian, agnostic, whatever, suffering at the hands of oppressors and terrorists, may we all rise up and find everlasting peace.
