HIP TRIP TO REALITY
“I thought we were riding in your Flower Bug car,” Roxie said.
“No, there will be a huge crowd going to the revolution at the Pentagon and I don’t want to take my car,” Nikki replied.
“Wow! You were right, Nikki. There are thousands of activists, hippies, students and draft resisters here and a couple thousand rifle-wielding soldiers.”
Nikki stopped to talk to one of the soldiers. Roxie came up and said, “there are huge crowds trying to force their way into the Pentagon building.”
Nikki said, “Roxie, let’s get out of here!”
“Roxie, I just realized these soldiers are human beings that just follow orders. The military strategists have gathered information used to decide if the United States goes to war.”
“That soldier I spoke with could have been my father, brother, or husband just helping to defend our country. What would we do without people like him?”
“This went from being a fun, hip trip to a painful reality!”
