Saigon And Farewell To A Good Grade

| Learning | December 21, 2013

(My tenth-grade history class is currently learning about the Vietnam War. Today’s focus is on the bombing of Cambodia.)

Teacher: “It was like science fiction. People in the US couldn’t believe it was happening!”

(We proceed to watch a short film filled with archival footage, as well as have a fifteen-minute discussion. At the end, my teacher asks if there are any questions. The girl in front of me raises her hand.)

Student: “So, did this, like, actually happen?”
