None had the impact on me that this one did. Remember it so vividly.

"Now we have Fucking National Guards Killing Students GO", my friend Mal blurted out in an anguished horrified lament. Everyone present was stunned and froze.

 Lot's of stuff affected me in life, but I became a different person after this incident. My entire world disappeared in that instance, and a new one appeared. It was terrifying. Still scared and frightened and cannot put Humpty Dumpty back together again. :-\


Look at how dead that kid is, the face of that poor girl, the horror and bewilderment in that guy's eyes. Wish it never had happened.
