"U2 grew up trying to run away from hippies. There was not a lot of love on our streets where we lived. But as you get older, you realize that love and peace and understanding never comes easy for anybody, at any time. The summer of love was a reaction to race riots, assassination and war. In the world today it takes a brave man to sing a song called Flower Child."
- Adam on Flower Child
