"My Country, Right or Wrong"

Adapted from Jane Eberly
Seymour High School


This saying has been transcended into history for many years now. Your parents or other elders may recall this saying being popular during the Vietnam Era. Many people held the feeling that they should fight for their country because their country asked, regardless of what they personally felt. As you know, antiwar protesters disagreed.

Today, your task is to respond to that quote. Do you agree or disagree, and more importantly, why?
