The peace sign is trendy again, and it is being merchandised just the same way hippie fashions were in the '60s and '70s. It is everywhere these days, on hats, t-shirts, handbags, shoes - you name it, the peace sign is on it!
Will the over saturation of the peace sign by the fashion industry dilute the message?
Will the peace sign lose its meaning and become nothing more than a fashion accessory?
Will the original message be lost on this generation, much the same way the cross has become more of a fashion statement and less of a proclamation of one's faith?
I have to admit that seeing the peace sign everywhere provides me hope that another generation has taken up the cause and that the message of peace and nuclear disarmament remains relevant.
"...Seek peace and pursue it!"
Peace, Love, and Light!
