May 4th

May 4, 1970, Kent Ohio. Four Kent State University students were murdered by National Guardsmen who opened fire on the unarmed, peaceful protesters. For me, this act was even more shocking than the assassinations of the Kennedy brothers and MLK as it meant that we were all vulnerable to attack, not just the high profile people. Let's remember William Schroeder, Allison Krause, Sandra Lee Scheuer, and Jeffrey Miller who died that day while exercising their duty to protest that which they saw to be unjust.

  1. The cities are burning again. The 'summer of love' is starting again. Those who don't remember history are condemned to repeat it.
