8257387187_038ba4cf63_bBack in the seventies, even with the looming nuclear threat of the Cold War, the world seemed a more positive place than it is today. It was also a time when girls wore all colors of the rainbow as opposed to the ubiquitous Disney princess pink. In 1972 actress and social activist Marlo Thomas (with the help of many celebrities) put out the record Free to Be… You and Me, a collection of songs (and later a book) that celebrated values such as individuality, tolerance and equality, as illustrated by the small print on the record sleeve that states that the album is for “children of all ages, shapes, sizes, colors and sexes”. I feel we need more of that today.

Check youtube for some songs and feel the love.
