May the 4th


Happy Star Wars day everybody! But being a Kent State alumnus, May 4th has a bit of a different significance  for me.

 

As the video says: It’s unclear whether the soldiers were given the order to shoot or not, but only the only states in the country where the National Guard used live ammunition at the time were Alaska and Ohio. Seems like a good way to stifle the antiwar sentiments raging on college campuses across the country to me.

At a time like this, it’s very important that we don’t forget.
