    In front of Vietnam conflict there is no words to define the terrifiant feeling that should cover all people.After a lot of years we can strongest than before underline that there weren’t winners, but only loosers in all the front,being americans or vietnamese as well.And the song ,even this is Suzanne, become deaf and without any meaning.Sad but true,the pain is much large.
