39 Years Ago

Today I'm thinking about 4 students that were killed at Kent State University and the 58,000+ U.S. soldiers that gave their lives for an ill-defined cause in Vietnam. May 4, 1970 is forever etched in my memory and was the day that my politics changed.

The senseless murder of college students was orchestrated by the Nixon administration; and while there was a trial for National Guard troops involved in the massacre many years after the incident, they were found not guilty.

People should take a moment and reflect on those days today. You can click on any links below to see some history of this tragic event. That's all I'm going to say!
