Four dead in Ohio

42 years ago today, on May 4, 1970, four unarmed students were killed and nine others were wounded by National Guardsmen who fired shots into a peaceful anti-war rally protesting President Nixon's decision to invade Cambodia.  A massacre that became known as simply "Kent State".

Four innocent kids murdered.  Just because they were tired of seeing their brothers, their cousins, their neighbors, their friends, their classmates go off to fight in that horrendous war and not come back home.  So sad.

RIP Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer, Allison Krause and William Schroeder.
