One Soldier's Inner Struggle (Clip 2 of 6)

In the second clip associated with the Soldiers of Conscience lesson plan, Aidan Delgado, an Iraq War veteran, remembers finding out about the September 11 attacks, his indoctrination in basic training and contemplating the morality of killing another human being. Ultimately, he questions whether he can kill without giving into hatred. Students should discuss what it means to be a conscientious objector.
