Thread Name: Songs about Vietnam War
Subject: RE: Songs about Vietnam War
I started reading this thread because someone was moved by the something 'spaw had said... I wanted to see..

I'm sitting here crying.. I HATED THAT TIME!

I had beautiful young friends that went away and died, or worse, came back with so much hurt I didn't know who they were. I fought with everything I had that stupid war!! PAIN!!

My friend Art (not our Art) and I were talking and he was angry because his brother had died so far away and he didn't want his brother to have died for nothing....but he did..he did..

I created a poster called "The color of blood when you're at war". It had the pictures from Life of the Milay Massacre (I can't even spell it..cheez). The young mother with her hand held up just before one of OUR soldiers killed her and her child..

Kent State...

I was ashamed to be an American, a human.. I wanted my friends back!!!!

Shit!!

Love, annap
