I absolutely love sardines but would not like to be packed like one. No, obviously I would not have gone even if I would have had a chance to but still, the event was a hallmark of sorts regarding our culture. As @Lulu Moppet indicated, Woodstock marked a change. Now, whether or not some kids just went to get high and listen to “some heavy sounds” or to the other end of the spectrum, pave the way for the “Jesus Christ Super Star” era, the change occurred peacefully. It was a place where all creeds, colors, and “genders” could come together and leave the outside world do whatever it was doing.
