In the time before the Civil War I think would have
been a good time to have lived in. The country was
still growing and developing at the time and I would
have like to have been part of that growing.
I've studied about and seen on television the times
when race relations, race riots and such, were really
bad in the country. I would have like to have lived in
those times to have really experienced it.
I think the 80's and 90's would have been the best
time to have lived in. The guys during that time
would hang out at the pool hall or bowling alley and
have a good time hanging out with each other. You
can't do that now.
I would have loved to have able to live in the time
of Woodstock. That is my favorite concert and to
have a VW van during that time would have been
great. The VW van from the 60's is the dream car.
I would have liked to have lived in the Greek and
Romans times. Just be a regular citizen and experience
the times. They were an interesting people in history.
To have lived in the 1970's during a time of peace and
psychedelic times would have been good time in the
past to have lived in. Maybe have gotten a chance
to hear Jimi Hendrix play.
Back when slavery was such an issue in the country.
I think I could have made a difference in helping get
rid of slavery if I could have lived in the time.
I think it would have been fun to have lived in the
60's. There was Woodstock and they had a lot
of cool cars back then.
I would have like to have lived during the Jazz era
especially in the Harlem area of New York City.
Everyone was having fun and being free spirited
during that time.
