One of the two biggest errors our generation made was to fail to distinguish the warriors from the war. I don't entirely blame us. We were too young to fully grasp it, and I doubt whether anyone, except maybe a very few trained psychologists, grasped what would happen from our rejection of people who were already traumatized. Even today, "Vietnam War veteran" carries a connotation of instability. At least we seem to have learned from that, and are not making the same mistake now.

The other mistake was to believe that civil rights, once fought for and achieved, would stay achieved. That is a whole different can of worms.
If you missed the National Memorial Day Concert yesterday, it's on YouTube HERE. I'm not embedding it because it's an hour and a half (and it doesn't actually start until around the 2:15 mark, so don't give up). But if you have time, I think it's worth a look.
