it is now people would say it raises the changing always well thank god we had no story had assigned charm that you know i don't have a rich isn't maybe welles to allow for her and the family she'd like an eternal was safe question one of the greatest thing that are going to move the move the audience of thing why religion being cast upon the death we
can accept as if it comes when we think it should come but not not crying like this ten thousand miles away and night sometimes at the television news you were a pitcher it's hard to believe that he was just don't think that they can send us details later on your identity is the beautiful memories you have twenty or so this life that god gave you the day he came home from camp was one of the most happiest days to see him come and get a car with a smile the climate that he showed on the john person you have to feel that the tea is that well i had a heavy hammer has the summary nobody thinks high heat i think a lot of this is
a life and death and the kids mentioned many things around the house that remind them of common well wait it is please and be having sons an imprint you want to witness they just want us to take an oath was mourned this is very hard to explain yes you know i felt like myself will watch it really hurt my parents when they were going through at that they're definitely feel like i'm just
thinking about myself but then i thought about it my parents and i believe this is how i felt about common and feel about me and whatever happened so that idea was just get an alarm i was always i always to play doesn't like that is done about ten guys to play on the current bush's stuff like that now because you know you look back and see how you used to feel that there's not a fool around with the law is just strange and that tension isn't the last time a lot of minds on this one of them that had a purpose now my hands this was to look at my son if you're lucky maybe you have to say every

the nixon mr johnson overcome some people's houses and to sit around a while before his death like this famine maybe helps but sort of get a different aspect of what's going on because i certainly think that dwayne johnson the nixon these two presidents one of them should have and that this thing was that was johnson's a tragedy but dixon doesn't seem to be doing too much was that was what i thought would be a commons debate welcome our panel they might
say that this is the church committee's first in the communion confirmation country from the church cause they made a major issue of change and you are using it and he loved singing and i'll always remember him singing happy in his choir outfit would have picked that poem from his faith based exception and now he's a static to sing and he kept on singing until they've drafted into the service
and then he when he went away to boot camp he was a pimp who looks like it was it really was only about six months he came home for twenty one days is we spend time together and he wanted always to be that his friends and i used to do at this point and the day you know it will be nice to marry much used to never forget him he wrote to me and he had had moments they use to sleep on his stomach the night and then they get sick and you can get insurance for syria to take an issue and how it is now i can't intuit know any hope any animal imagine how we're going to cure somebody is a night that they should send young boys that they have to show people is not right

like i pray for my son of getting pregnant but you know i do sincerely think and impeached him i said here seem poised coming we're going hear picture income and then the aisle like one they are still young boy i said he must have just got home from service many had twelve girls and a boy and they were coming to him as said that human go and i just looked at him and tears came around and i'm just thinking oh my boy and he asked what happens when i'm walking the streets at young boy in the picture my son so you know always be around you know and i don't know where i'd go hello it's me and

we can the pittsburgh police bishop and the palestinians buried has been doing on the pre nineteen seventies by a lot of people said good riddance her
she was a good girl she cared about people just don't like or an idea she caused memory of color or some people think it is you are people those people are saying that you know good whatever they don't accept haiti he loved yours whatever last may was so me that if i made some irrational statements i asked if you said was a cotton and i work right there like oh my job like ryan hope to pray no other parent or no charge was said that you know some

fifth death at camp discuss is what happens after this is no way to find hope after i can't believe they want someone shot and nineteen and wanting to live so much that tent right there you know when a person commits suicide and say one of the ted cruz's shutdown and this got to live and i think that's why houses around me because she wanted to live and i think she wants to pack to life when i heard that jesus's death i screamed unlike iowa i i guess i screamed because it's like what most people do when they find out that some instead
but it really you know as the days went on afterwards it didn't affect me that she was dead i can rationalize issues that there's nothing about is someone telling them she was dead in tow like two days later when the casket with open eyes turning out like it wasn't her thick makeup on her and she was wearing this for redress and it just wasn't like her well my parents i saw her that dress you know with all that make it on top and shut the casket immediately as it was and how that was in there or it was an image that someone put on her you know like she never wore makeup and you know we're really fully dresses like she had not really you know free and so she would wear jeans a lot

Episode Description
Three young victims of the nation?s tragic confrontations during the past year in Vietnam and Kent State and Jackson State universities are eulogized in an NET documentary which recreates their lives through the remembrance and suffering of their families. The episode profiles young persons who are as varied as America itself; Carmine Macedonio, a postman?s son from Long Island, NY, killed in Vietnam when his tank hit a mine; Allison Krause, a daughter of a Pittsburgh businessman, struck down on the Kent State campus last May 4 during protests over the U.S. invasion of Cambodia; and Phillip Gibbs, a Black Mississippian, father and student, shot at Jackson State University during campus demonstrations last May 15. The families? emotional reactions to their loss vary from grief to bitterness to disbelief, and each person remembers in his own way. Phillip Gibbs? young wife, Dale, an expectant mother with a one-year-old son, hides her grief over her husband?s death as she reminisces about the plans they had for the future: We?d dream of a large house ourselves and about six children; he wanted all to be boys; he wanted a basketball team.? Phillip?s brother Faigin sums up his reaction to his brother?s slaying: ?I don?t really hate; I mostly just feel disgusted.? Arthur Krause, Allison?s father, cries out against the injustice of his daughter?s death at Kent State as he stands by her gravesite. ?She was a good girl. She cared about people. She didn?t like war. Is that a reason for killing her?? At home, Allison?s mother shakes her head in disbelief as she leafs through a number of hate letters, including one written by an anonymous woman. ?It?s still a mystery to me,? remarks Mrs. Krause, ?not evening knowing my daughter, she felt free to call her names.? Angelo Macedonio, Carmine?s father, compares the loss of his eldest son in Vietnam, one of ten children, to that of an amputated finger. ?My children are my flesh and blood. That?s all I have. When you lose a bit of it, you lose a part of yourself.? Fearing that their other sons who will soon face the draft will meet the same fate, the family is contemplating moving to Canada where their son?s ?don?t have to be drafted for unnecessary wars.? ?Part of a Family? is a production of NET division, Educational Broadcasting Corporation, in association with Belafonte Enterprises.
