Synopsis
The male members of The Archies get their draft notices just before their big peace rally. Their hippie friend Clyde urges them to burn their draft cards, but Archie explains that though they oppose the war, breaking the law and rioting won't bring about social change. At the peace rally, Archie delivers the message that if the new generation works together, it can solve America's problems ("bigotry, pollution, and a senseless war") without violence.

Indexer Notes

The final caption, which says that The Archies "are still a year away from being drafted but this is the way it would have happened," leaves it ambiguous as to whether this is an "imaginary" story or not.

A rare example of Archie expressing political views, both against the Vietnam War and against violent protests.

The title of the story comes from a song released by The Archies on the album "Sunshine," one of the most serious and ambitious songs by the group. It was a hit overseas but failed to catch on in America. The final panel has the group singing the actual song, though with the word "God" changed to "got."
