Even if you weren’t alive when the My Lai massacre took place, I still hope you’ll plan to be at the memorial. The war against Vietnam was built on lies, and caused immense suffering. However, we didn’t really learn from it, and I think our President is ready to start another war. (Actually, I think he’s eager to start one.)
We can’t forget what happened in Vietnam, and we have to keep working to stop another Vietnam. That’s what GVCP is doing, and that’s what Veterans for Peace is doing.
See you there?
