This is for a hub I am writing, thank you!

Interesting experiences! Have you written any hubs about these things? I will go and look, but I also remember the racial unrest of the 60s and 70s. Still hasn't stopped, has it? UFOs! Oh my!
I haven't written any about these. The Midwest was known for UFO sightings in that era, and usually in the Spring. On one occasion I witnessed one in the daylight at tree top level; silent and hovering. My father saw them but would never discuss it.
This brought back a memory for me. My mother and sister saw a giant UFO right over our house in Houston. I so wanted to see it too. I would climb on the roof at night searching for UFOs. No, I never saw one. I did see ghost lights of Marfa, Tx though
All that in one decade? Glad you kept it together! How is your daughter now? OK, I hope.
She is 52 now and just got her credentials and is teaching. I have a hub about her teen problem. She does have a scar on her face that she had to deal with through school. She grew up very strong. Thank you for asking.
It was a time when kids could freely play outside. I remember when the latchkey trend started. The outside became a scary place.
I remember the Beatles debut, and the moon landing for sure. And the hippies! Free love! But I was still too immature to remember how tragic the assisnations were. I think if we had one now, it would not be quite so horrible!
