Where Have All The Flowers Gone?

Mary & Kingston Trio: PRESENT

" All the time in life, appreciation to the older generations will remind us that the world is not ours.
They, the older people they tasted the salt before we were born.
They faced the hardship and trauma during the world wars.
They survived the times of Hitler, Franco, and Mussolini,
They even saw the blooming flowers before us.
They fell in love before we comprehend how to say love.
They listened to the music full of harmony with deep, meaningful lines.
Thus, whenever we the young people started to think about it.
You will understand why I always, always.
Take my hat's off to the older people.
And this what makes me to appreciate those times.
Rings the bell in my head.
How great today's people are.
Greater, greater are those older people.
Let us take a step back.
In our racing path filled by selfish, egoism, and forgetfulness.
To look with passionate eyes.
The older people around us.
Who brace the English weather to walk on the streets.
Who brace the frail illness on wheelchairs.
Who brace God for forgiveness and sin done.
Humility arose from this reflection.
Even though I was born in a paradise.
Missing those wonderful and historic moments.
That they had experienced.
As I know.
Years in the future.
I will be like one of them too " Mary Travers (born 9 November 1936 in Louisville, Kentucky) is a member of the folk group Peter, Paul and Mary, along Peter Yarrow and Noel "Paul" Stookey. Together, they formed one of the most successful folk-singing groups of the 1960s.
