Report Could You Be a Hippie? in Random Thoughts Posted December 20, 2005 Being from the generation where hippies were in the spotlight so to speak I am one. I lived the lifestyle of one and have the ideals of the hippie generation. People looked at us like we were terrible people or poor trash. But that is not true, you don't have to be poor to be a hippie. It is not the way you dress, behavior, economic status, or social milieu. It is how one approaches life....beliveing in freedom, peace, love, respection others and of course the earth. Hippies haven't died, they are still here and always have been over the years. Some may even put Jesus in there, since he was a man of peace, not using violence to solve a situation. I think we all have some hippie in us. And I am not saying everyone should be a hippie, just that we all can practice peace and love and respect more in our daily lives.
