Thread Name: Songs about Vietnam War
Subject: RE: Songs about Vietnam War
mg, that was Beautiful. I think I've got to get to an ocean pretty soon, after that....

I'd like to just say that, along with others, I have been deeply touched by virtually all the posts in this thread. There have been a number of diverse viewpoints and experiences shared, and they merit thoughtful attention and respect. It's a rare thing when a group of people who mostly don't know one another on a face-to-face basis, can open up like this on such a sensitive topic, and do so with Heart and without rancor. There are legacies from the Vietnam War that are awful to contemplate, but this thread shows that there are also legacies that in every way Honor the most fundamental thing that any war will teach: that we as human beings need to care about one another.

'Spaw, go to it!
