Today is the 50th anniversary of the Kent State shootings.
This is another one of those events that occurred within my lifetime, but a few years too early for me to remember it. I had not yet turned two on May 4, 1970.
Growing up in Ohio in the 1970s, though, this was a topic that I heard a lot about.
Much has been said and written about Kent State over the past half-century. So I’ll be brief.
