Anyone here remember Kent State? It was one of the things that began to turn me from a Carl McIntire fan fundy as a ninth grader to a pot smoking hippie in high school to someone who doesn't put much hope in politics at all.

Yes. I remember it well. I was young, but it was all over the tv.

Too young, but when I was a little older I remember seeing the famous picture of the grieving girl next to a student's body.

Did not know today was the anniversary. I was only 10 but I remember my friend's older brother, who was college age being furious about it. At that age I couldn't comprehend the significance of the event. I do remember him going to the war protests held at the University of Buffalo. Anyway.........

Such a turbulent time in our country's history. I was too young to remember, but like PW, remember the pictures.

It was a sad time. I think that year went a long way in turning more Americans against the war in Vietnam, and was one factor in Jimmy Carter being elected president 6 years later.
