Verde Valley Special Needs Support Group

Thursday, 03/22 6:00p Verde Valley Special Needs Support Group

Our children have Downs syndrome, seizure disorder, feeding tubes, premature birth, deafness, autism spectrum disorder, spina bifida, the list goes on. I hated the hard surgeries for my son, but one mother wished her child had a condition that doctors could fix. I struggled with how to respond to strangers that point and stare, but another mother wanted her child's condition to be visibly obvious so strangers would understand why he wasn't doing what other 9-year-old boys did. It is powerful to simply congregate with other parents whose children have special needs, hear the variation in stories, see the experience refracted through the crystal of multiple identities. Because I've learned on this parenting journey, no one is behind me, no one is in front of me. I am exactly where I need to be with my child. A place where we all are students and we all are teachers.

Vietnam Film Series Viewing and Discussion

Wednesday, 02/07 - 03/28 4:00p to 7:00p The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick explore one of the most consequential, most misunderstood, and divisive events in American history: the Vietnam War. This epic 18-hour documentary begins by showing the history of Indochina before U.S. involvement. It starts with the colonization of major portions of Indochina by France in 1858 and ends with conversations and statements by participants from America's war some 150 years later. Through the testimony of nearly 80 eyewitnesses, Burns and Novick bring us a fresh look at this painful conflict. They interviewed those who fought in the war and those who fought against it, grunts and officers in the army and Marines, prisoners of war, medics, a fighter pilot, a helicopter crew chief, a Gold Star mother and sister, a nurse, college students, anti-war activists, deserters, CIA officers, diplomats, and journalists. 

For many Americans and American institutions, the war in Vietnam was the event that changed everything. As a result of that conflict our music, our appearance, our relationship with our government and the rest of the world began a long, painful metamorphosis that continues to this day. An entire generation of Americans are veterans of this conflict, some in combat on foreign soil and some involved in struggles at home. Now that generation is largely in charge of the country, and it is undeniable that the effects of Vietnam continue to reverberate in our land.

Often, when we talk about the Vietnam War, we are talking only about ourselves. In this film, you will get to know dozens of Vietnamese witnesses from the North and the South – soldiers, civilians, spies, artists, diplomats, politicians, and journalists – who were willing for the first time to share their stories about the war as it really was. There is no single truth to be extracted from the Vietnam War. On all sides, questions remain that will never be fully answered. Who was right? Who was wrong? What does it mean to be a citizen, and a patriot? Were the sacrifices in blood and bone too high? Could it have turned out differently? As in all histories, much of this work is praised and much is condemned. That's the wonder of history and where the opportunity to discuss each episode plays an important role.

If you are part of the Vietnam War era or would like to understand it better, join fellow community members weekly at the library to view, listen and discuss this epic event. Our purpose is not to convert but converse, and all points of view are welcome.

The Library will be showing and discussing the following episodes on the following dates:

  • March 14, Episode 8. The History of the World (04/1969-05/1970) Nixon withdraws troops but upon sending forces to Cambodia the antiwar movement reignites.
  • March 21, Episode 9. A Disrespectful Loyalty (05/1970-03/1973) South Vietnam fights alone as Nixon and Kissinger find a way out for America. POWs return.
  • March 28, Episode 10. The Weight of Memory (03/1973-Onward) Saigon falls and the war ends. Americans & Vietnamese from all sides seek reconciliation
