UGLY TIMES

Forty-two years ago, the killings at Kent State happened.  It is difficult to place that into context for someone who was not alive at that time.

For me, a veteran, a college student, a libertarian (with a small "L") and a Nixonphobe, it was a deeply distressing time.  I don't ever want my country to feel that again.

The best way to avoid that is for the next generations to be taught about all that went wrong that horrible day.  One of my children calls me or texts me every year to tell me she remembers, no doubt with David Crosby and Steven Stills in the background.
