Since I was a kid, I heard about war when my dad met his friends who were also soldiers once. They didn’t think that I cared about what they were telling. I believed they never intended to tell me all things that I heard. Well, nobody thought that a 4 or 5 year-old kid liked learning about war than playing with her toys.
Every year, my dad and his friends who joined the army at the same day met on July 27, considered it as their early memorial day. When they reminded of someone passed away during the war, they told each other some pieces of memory they had. Those were funny things, and those were terrified things. Again, they didn’t notice that I drunk every words of them.
Those things were much more different with what I read in history text books, and much different to compare with what I read on newspapers every year when it comes to April.
Once, I asked my dad about the war written in our text book, he said that: You shouldn’t listen to only one side, especially when it comes to war.
When I read about “The Vietnam War” by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick two days ago, I was so excited and wanted to watch it. Today, I finished watching the first of 10 episodes and my plan is to finish other 9 episodes. If you want to see more about the Vietnam War, you should watch it: http://www.pbs.org/video/deja-vu-1858-1961-vietnamese-yhieqx/
