I imagine this article will only interest a few, but in light of OW,it seems worthy of posting.

KENT, Ohio (Reuters) - Survivors of the shooting of 13 students by the Ohio National Guard during an anti-war demonstration at Kent State University in 1970 called on Thursday for a new probe into the incident that came to define U.S. divisions over the Vietnam War.

Four students were killed and nine wounded in the shootings on May 4, 1970 that followed days of demonstrations on the campus after disclosures of a U.S.-led invasion of Cambodia that signaled a widening of the war in Southeast Asia.

What are the odds here :

Canfora, and other wounded students Dean Kahler, Thomas Grace and Joe Lewis, asked Holder on Thursday for a new probe, saying anyone involved in the shooting should be offered immunity to provide information. They asked any surviving guardsmen to come forward with information.

For those of us who it still haunts, a definitive answer to what occurred would be healing for the families, guardsman and country.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~Rumi~
