On a plane from London to Winnepeg I read, to my horror, the May 18, 1970 Time cover story about the shootings at Kent State
that happened while I was in London. I had been in Britian for a month to visit with Buddhists, there being to none to visit with in northern Minnesota. It was a wonderful trip in terms of who I got to meet and all, but I was totally out of touch with the news during that time. Had I known about Kent State while I was there I might not have come back. It is interesting after all these years how evocative the memories of that time still are.
