Vietnam

I was prepping for my ESL class, and we are going to read a story from the Vietnam War, so I thought I'd read a little about the history in case my students asked me what the Vietnam War was about, which I didn't know.

So, I read the Wikipedia article on Vietnam. Oh my gosh, I've never been so upset. I tend to cry a lot when I prep for my ESL class. It was horrible! What were we thinking?!

I would have defected to Canada to avoid the draft, too.

Which leads me to believe that we as humans are INCAPABLE of governing ourselves without Divine intervention, which we scoff at.

Look at the current state of politics and the economy and the wars in the Middle East. Do you think we have ANY idea what we are doing and what the consequences of our actions will be? NONE. And we refuse to ask for help. And we are, as a whole, selfish and stupid.

Amen

(it's neat because I had actually already decided that "amen" would be my comment before I opened up the window and saw that the previous commenter also wrote "amen")
