#4 My Lai 2001

16 March 2001

My Lai, Quang Ngai, Viet Nam

To The Editor,

Today marks the 33rd year since those horrible events took place in Viet Nam at the hamlets we now know as My Lai. Unfortunately it is not a unique occurrence in the annals of mankind's behavior during wartime. Yet for the American public it struck a nerve showing we, too, were not impervious to succumbing to our baser instincts. We should not forget. And by remembering we can assure that those 504 human beings did not die for naught.
