Were it not for the rain forecast, I would have invited interested persons
to join me in Harvard Square this Friday, May 4, at 12 Noon through 12:24 p.m.,
when the shootings occurred at Kent State University in Ohio.
I may be there anyway but, under the circumstances, in lieu of formally announcing
a vigil of some sort, I prefer to share some useful and very interesting resources
about what happened that year in 1970 during our fight to save our lives and end the
U.S. government's war against Vietnam and it's people and, also, the American people.
If you look at the photos of John Filo, Howard Ruffner, Chuck Ayres and/or Paul Tople
you will be amazed.
