Thinks What Collin and Thatcher (Theo's brother) is wrong because they are deserting the war.

arguments about the war. Grace's

to her mother and Theo's oppinoins
Grace dicides that as long as her
brother is safe nothing else matters r
The whole reason the events in this book took place was because Grace's brother Collin burned his draft card. He did this in protest of the Viatnam War So I thought I would touch on some importent protests that went on during the war.
Orginized Protests of the war started in 1963.
•In 1964, students marched in New York, San Francisco, Boston, Seattle and the farm state capitol of Madison, Wisconsin.
In 1965 teachers at the University of Michigan organized a teach-in to oppose the war. In April 25,00 people marched on Washington.

Protest on the war in viatnam In May the first draft card burnings
took place. This is exactly as it sound
kids burnt there draft cards witch
were there invitations into the war. They
were not sapposed to turn this down In
June protesters marched on the pentigon
and tried to stop trains transporting toops.They are many many more demonstrationsI could talk about that lasted all through out the war but I just wanted to touch on a couple so you could get the idea of how pasionate people where about stopping the war.
