  1. Thank you for reminding us of this May 4th tragedy. A slaughter,
    whose innocent victims then President I-am-not-a-crook Richard Nixon callously called “bums”. In America.
    This, as dozens of drafted men were dying, hundreds maimed, every week, week after bloody week, in an insane out-of-control war that kept on grinding forward, year after year after year. And when you demonstrated, when you protested, you were killed….
    May we never forget. Four dead in Ohio.
    Shot dead by the National Guard.
    May it never happen again. May we actively work to prevent it.
