John & Catherine Debs
"We have focused our philanthropy on K through 12 education for children who are born in the wrong zip code. When we visited Ken in Walpole and viewed his documentaries we realized that supporting Ken’s work was the best way to help educate our children and their parents also. With K thru 12 schools offering fewer history and civics courses, the need for Ken’s work is that much greater. We are proud, as members of The Better Angels Society, to help fund his documentaries, most recently his epic work Vietnam."
Amy & David Abrams
"Thanks to Ken Burns, Lynn Novick, and the entire team. There is no one better than the storytellers and historians at Florentine Films to help us understand the Vietnam War and its aftereffects- one of the defining chapters of our history. The series is evenhanded, reflective, and thought provoking. We are drawn into the individual stories, which, stitched together, form a compelling and riveting narrative of a difficult time. It is a privilege to support Florentine Films and the production of The Vietnam War."
Jonathan & Jeanne Lavine
"Our support for The Better Angels Society was motivated by our desire to make important, unbiased history available to millions of people as well as assist Ken’s undertaking of one of the most divisive, controversial and unresolved periods in our nation’s history. Ken’s telling of this epic conflict does unique justice in honoring our brave military and their many sacrifices but also presents a candid portrayal of the losses suffered on both sides of the Vietnam War."
Paul & Sandra Montrone
"Those of us here today have inherited an incredible gift--our wonderful, thriving nation. It arose from the pain, sacrifices, energy and accomplishments of our forebears. But they are gone, so how can we express our gratitude to them? Ken Burns has presented us with a unique way to show our appreciation. In supporting his efforts our family feels that we are giving back, and thanking our forebears by educating our current citizens on what these people did for us. But, in addition, Ken gives us the opportunity to learn from the past, and with this knowledge continue to nourish our nation for future generations."
Lynda & Stewart Resnick
"Few filmmakers have adequately explored the emotional toll the Vietnam War took on our country. Ken’s extraordinary filmmaking talent is perfectly suited to capture the true sadness surrounding this horrible conflict."
Tom & Bonnie McCloskey
"There is no one who can tell a story as big as The Vietnam War, as Ken Burns, nor in such a dramatic way. Ken’s extraordinary and invaluable work is something Bonnie and I enthusiastically support. Ken continues to appeal to “the better angels of our nature” and through his works he does exactly that. He is an inspirational and gifted “emotional archaeologist” whom we are thrilled to support."
