On March 24, 1980, one of El Salvador's most respected church and community leaders, Archbishop Oscar Romero was shot to death by gunmen as he celebrated Mass in San Salvador.

He once wrote in a letter to Presidant Jimmy Carter,
"....You say that you are a Christian. If you really are, please stop sending aid to the military here because they use it only to kill my people."

He got no response.

On March 16, Nicholas Hughes, the son of poets Ted Hughes and Syvia Plath, committed suicide, 46 years after Sylvia Plath's suicide.
