If only it was self-evident.

We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

- US Declaration of Independence, 1776.

Cluster Bomb, 1966.

We visited this orphanage in Hoi An, taking milk and fruit as gifts. Many of the children horribly deformed due to the on-going effects of Agent Orange.


  1. The use of Agent Orange was one of our more serious travesties.....many of our own boys have suffered from the use of it, also. I feel very sorry for those poor kids.

  2. that would be a bouncing betty.
    Trip the trigger, it flies up about three feet and explodes in a circle from its center...just about ouch level for guys.

    My only bout of agent orange is an orangish brown spotting on my lower legs.
    I dunno if it's A.O. or the other...O.A.
