Eve of Destruction

By Michael G. Stogner

Just something to think about.

I first heard this song when I was 15 years old, that was 1965. That was 57 years ago. Because of this song the United States of America lowered the Voting age from 21 years old to 18 years old.

Passed by Congress March 23, 1971, and ratified July 1, 1971, the 26th amendment granted the right to vote to American citizens aged eighteen or older.
