The Summer of Hate

I was thinking earlier today about that historical phenomenon in U.S. history called the Summer of Love- which happened 50 years ago this summer back in 1967 when a whole bunch of flower children and hippies flocked en masse to San Francisco and everyone was convinced that a new golden age they called the Age of Aquarius was just around the corner.
I was then thinking how this Summer of 2017 might turn into the Summer of Hate given all the recent incidents this year of people attacking, maiming and killing other people because they didn’t belong to the same religion, race or political belief system as the attacker.
Then I get on Facebook and remember that today June 21st is the start of summer.
And then I ask myself, is the Summer of Hate just getting started?
