John Kerry, Vietnam Veterans Against the WarWrite: Assignment must be typed, with your name at the top
Find at least one reason that the Vietnam War was wrong, immoral, unjust, or destructive from each of the four documents. Then just type it up as a list like this:
George Skakel: << type here a sentence that tells at least one reason Skakel thought the war was wrong, etc. >>
Paul Potter: << type one of Potter’s reasons here >> Martin Luther King, Jr.: <<reason>>
John Kerry: <<reason>>
You only need to write a single sentence about a single one of each writer’s reasons. You have to do all four writers, though. You do not have to cover all of the reasons that the writer gives. Use NO QUOTATIONS. Write their reasons entirely in your own words.
