May 4th is always an interesting day for me.  I usually wake up on a spring morning and hear the birds, think about my day and head off to work.  But, eventually, the thought that it is May 4th creeps into my mind. 

I was a young boy in NE Ohio when the shootings occurred.  I remember being sent home from Edgefield Elementary (the radicals, after all, were coming) in the middle of the day.  I remember how quiet it was in the house.  I remember the whispers between my parents.  My mom was a Kent State grad and she had a sister at the school at the time of the shootings.  It was a somber and long day. 

The scenes on the evening news and in the local paper were shocking, even to a young boy.  And, the realization that the National Guard fired into unarmed students was upsetting even to me.  I still shake my head about that to this day and it is probably one of the reasons I’ve been a pacifist for my entire life.  The violence served no purpose but to end the lives of people with hopes and dreams. 

To this day there is a candlelight vigil to honor the victims.  There are speeches.  There are memories.  There are throats that tighten as people get choked-up. 

*Interesting note - of the four fatally shot students, only two of them were actually attending the anti-war rally (which was in protest to Nixon’s bombing of neutral Cambodia).  The other two just happened to get in the way of a stray bullet. 

i have been so productive for staying in bed all day. i got two job applications to edgefield done, took my BA101 quiz and exam, i got 96 and 100, respectively. also, my instructor gave me extra credit on my discussion post because i was encouraging to other students and responded to their posts. and i replied to a few marketing posts because i got my quiz for that class done yesterday (another 100 btw, #humblebrag).

now i’m watching bill nye saves the world and snuggling with peppermint aka the cutest kitty ever.

tomorrow i’m going to clean the bathroom and go out to edgefield and take a distillery tour and visit the place i want to work in the fall :)
