Get set! Point! Fire!

On May 04, 1970, the Ohio National Guard shot students at Kent State University. 4 dead, 9 wounded. Republican Governor James Rhodes sent the soldiers to Kent to stop Vietnam War protesters. This post is dedicated to the memory of Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer, and William Schroeder. America had turned on its own. Read about the SHOOT order.

The definition of irony, eh? Being shot at a war protest.

Too bad those killed weren't the children of Ohio National Guardsmen or Republican Governor James Rhodes.

A sad day to be sure.

As I was only ten, most of the incident is a vague memory. It is the most significant reason for my interest in politics.
