Pinnacle of Globalization

I came here in the sixties to see the land of the free. I was living in Greenwich village, going through the counterculture, the culture of love, going to an Irish bar at the end of the day and getting the New York Times at three in the morning. I was able to go anywhere, accepted anywhere, nobody cared where I was from, what religion have. It was a fantastic experience. I thought this is what the world as it ought to be.
