KENT STATE OHIO
Today is the 40th anniversary of the attack on student demonstrators at Kent State University. They were protesting the Vietnam War (which Vietnamese people call the American War). Protests escalated after Richard Nixon announced the bombing of Cambodia.
The Ohio National Guard opened fire on students, killing 4 and injurying many more, some of whom were just walking on campus.
Still today we engage in war. "When will we ever learn...."
