Unforgettable: Kent State Massacre

The shooting of 13 student protesters, 4 of whom later died, at Kent State by the Ohio National Guard on May 4, 1970  was a moment that seemed impossible to believe at the time–that this could happen in America.  What were we coming to?  This was the event that pushed me from being ambivalent about the Vietnam War to being thoroughly and irrevocably against it, and against the type of arrogance of power that could lead to an incident like this.
