Ah, but to have come of age oblivious to John, Paul, George and Ringo and be too young to have partaken of that muddy, druggy rite of passage in Woodstock, NY. There was no draft and your father was likely not a World War II veteran. You may have had older brothers or sisters who protested Vietnam, but you were not burdened with that internal conflict. Your scars also differ. You cannot tell people where you were the day JFK or MLK was assassinated. And you don’t consider yourself to be “old.” That is reserved for the first wave baby boomers, who are entering their 70s at a rapid clip.
