Remembering the efforts of my father Arthur S. Krause to 'shine a light on Kent State' gives me renewed inspiration to pursue our right to know the truth and renews our commitment to not let these events get swept under the carpet again.

I'm also drawn to a recent comment from a facebook friend on the relevance of what we may learn from Kent State:

"Freedom of speech and the right of assembly must be protected. The ability of the government to preserve order is a necessity in a civilized nation. These two elements must be balanced, but it is incumbent on those who are armed to ensure that ONLY those who cannot otherwise be prevented from harming others be subject to potentially lethal violence."

Our San Francisco event also brought Lester Chambers of the Chambers Brothers to "share his truth' on Kent State as his recording of "Time Has Come Today' was at the top of the charts when the Kent State shootings happened. For us, he performed "People Get Ready', expressing his wish to amend the words of this song to: "People get ready there's a CHANGE a'coming!" Please listen and get ready for the change a'coming!
