Change only comes after enough innocent blood soaks into America’s soil. Is it enough now? Forty eight years ago, the war came home. From the Kent State Massacre, college students learned they were not safe exercising their first amendment rights. Now high school kids across America realize “It could have been me,” and they are not taking it lying down. They have great power and they know it. In this discussion, Laurel Krause who was 15 when her 19 years old sister Allison was one of the four students killed at Kent State on May 4, 1970, talks about this moment. As only someone like Laurel could know about the survivors of the Parkland Massacre,”This is just the beginning of their trauma.” The truth, she argues, is essential for the real healing we need.
