James Brown, the "Godfather of Soul" helped calm down the city at the behest of Tom Atkins and Mayor White.
I grew weary of the gun show and wandered off to take photos. Eventually attending a Vietnam War protest on Boston Common. In retrospect that is ironic since by the summer I was being shipped off to Boot Camp in the Great Lakes. It was a hell of a year.

I took the flower back to the gun show which in retrospect might have gone badly.
I was inspired by a famous "Flower Power" photograph taken by Bernie Boston but didn't follow through.
Still I got some icy stares for taking a flower to a gun show, what does that tell us?
