D is for The Deer Hunter #BloggingFromAtoZ


I grew up watching the Vietnam War on TV daily in the six o-clock news.  In Washington D.C. seeing the protestors "The Hippies" in front of the White House.
I think it is a war that made my generation a bit too accepting of the inevitability of war, those a bit older fought it and opposed it, but those of us who were children I do not believe clearly grasped the actual horror.
I was 19 years old when I saw the Deer Hunter and that was the movie that put a human horror, a human face to that war for me.
Perhaps deep down inside I was a pacifist before I realized I was one! Happy A-Z

An in-depth examination of the ways in which the U.S. Vietnam war impacts and disrupts the lives of people in a small industrial town in Pennsylvania.
