I am not going to write a blog post about Tom Hayden here. I will on Medium soon and will post the link on here.
What I would like to say right now is that when I met Tom Hayden the Vietnam War was going strong. Protesting was a daily thing in the US and I was in High School.
I was mesmerized by him and his thoughts and speeches. His voice boomed out and I never lost my attention nor train of thought. He kept everyone in the room and at different rallies I went to totally interested till the end.
I met him later in life and he was still the same Tom Hayden from the protesting days, only older. We talked about his past and what I remember about him and he was thankful for my words, at least he said that to me.
Who knows what he thought after I left.
Here is more on the Tom Hayden I knew and respected.
