"May 4th commemoration activities at Kent State
Posted by Laura Johnston May 01, 2008 16:23PM
Kent State University will commemorate the 38th anniversary of the May 4 shootings this weekend with movies, poetry readings, a march and a ceremony, all concentrating on the question, "Where does it end?"
On May 4, 1970, members of the Ohio National Guard opened fire on Kent students protesting the Vietnam War. Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer and William Schroeder were killed; nine others were injured.
This year, a poem Miller wrote in high school, in 1966, provides the commemoration's theme, "Where does it end?"
Scott Ritter, a former United Nations weapons inspector, will speak on the topic at noon Sunday, May 4, in the commons. Other activities can be found at http://dept.kent.edu/May4/ ."
