I didn't plan to write about this until May but it needs to be said now. May 4, 1970, the Governor of Ohio sent the National Guard to Kent State University, to put down an "inconvenient" protest of the War in Vietnam. A total of 67 shots were fired in 13 seconds; four students were killed and nine others wounded. We are at a time in this country, where we need to study this tragedy so that it does not become our future. People are protesting again and, as Colin Powell said, "It is American as Apple Pie." We need to respect the right of people to assemble and protest, even if we disagree with them and we need to make sure that nothing like May 4, 1970, happens now.
