Joan Baez: Where have all the flowers gone

For my generation the memory of the Viet Nam War is not just a matter of history; the Viet Nam war is still vivid in our minds. As a young man I remember the horrors of this conflict, one that nobody really comprehended, yet millions had to go and fight not knowing if they would come back safe. Many did not, and others came back with problems and memories that would haunt them forever. This song encapsulates the tragic feeling of that era. I particularly love Baez expressive voice and one cannot say enough about her artistry, stage presence and her wonderful skills with the guitar.
