As an original Woodstock Survivor who sat in the mud with 500,000 brothers and sisters the weekend of August 15, 16, 17, 1969 I witnessed first hand the love , the sharing, and the sacrifice of those that attended. A half million people were galvanized in the mud together. Here the seeds of brotherhood and compassion were sown which healed this Nation.
It's time for us to return to these core values once more. a National Holiday will help us focus on what this histroric event has come to symbolize.
We, the undersigned, petition the United States Congress to enact a law designating the three days of August 15, 16, 17 as The Spirit of Woodstock Festival Celebration.
The impact of this event is indelibly etched in the moral consciousness of this nation. Woodstock is an icon of American identity symbolizing the virtues of peace, brotherhood and compassion upon which this country was based upon.
It is only fitting that we should pay homage to this unique American epic event.
