Kent State Massacre.

The girl screaming over Jeffrey Miller’s body — the most famous photograph from the massacre — she was a local teenager. When her name became public, she was inundated with death threats from all over the country.

In 1970, we also had a president who thrived on, and promoted divisiveness and fear. The summary execution of four random students by the Ohio National Guard stands as testimony to the politics of divisiveness and fear, and their fruit, for my generation.
