From1955 to 1970 America went through social maelstroms as its youths questioned the mores of Society and in the process were canonized into our Parthenon: 14 yr old Emmett Till sparked the CRM and MLK Jr while college student Jeffrey Miller ended our involvement in Viet nam. After this massacre the US KNEW it was TIME to get out of southeast asia. It only TOOK killing its own white kids to finally say ENOUGH!
