One of the most iconic photos of the 1960's anti-war protests was the "Flower Power" one taken by the late Bernie Boston, a news photographer. It depicts a young man inserting carnations into the barrels of soldiers' guns. The soldiers were protecting the Pentagon during an anti-war demonstration.
That image can probably be recalled instantly with my description, but if not please click on the links in the paragraph above.
That photo was the inspiration for my new Flower Child Earrings.

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower
