This is the anniversary of Kent State shootings

KENT, Ohio Today marks the 37th anniversary of the day National Guardsmen shot and killed four students at Kent State University during a Vietnam protest.
The anniversary comes just days after one of the students wounded in the 1970 shootings released a static-filled recording in which he says a Guard officer issues the command, "Right here! Get Set! Point! Fire!"

Background noise on the recording makes it difficult to understand the tape. The word "point" is clear, followed by the sound of shots being fired. There is no indication on the tape of who said "point."

Today's events at Kent State will remember those killed during that long-ago anti-war protest and will also remember victims of last month's shooting massacre at Virginia Tech. A bell will toll 32 times in the 9 a-m hour, once for each of the victims. And there will a candlelight vigil this evening.

Crosby Stills Nash & Young - Four Dead In Ohio Lyrics


Tin soldiers and Nixon's comin'.
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drummin'.
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it.
Soldiers are cutting us down.
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her and
Found her dead on the ground?
How can you run when you know?

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na.
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na.
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na.
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na.

Gotta get down to it.
Soldiers are cutting us down.
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her and
Found her dead on the ground?
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon's comin'.
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drummin'.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
