This is photo is of the Kent State University massacre that occurred on the 4th of
May, 1970 at the hands of the Ohio National Guard in response to student protests against the American invasion of Cambodia.
I love this photo because of the pure emotional power that it holds. It represents two different reactions to death…utter shock and total anguish. It is frightening in so many ways.
As I sat thinking to myself, I noticed something that I hadn’t for a very long time. So long in fact, that I forgot what it was that I called the spectacle that I was witnessing. The light from the living room candle was dancing on the glass container it sat in as its flame flickered. It was somewhat depressing, enlightening, and very entrancing, all at the same time. I was enthralled by it. So much so that I didn’t notice the minutes pass, I didn’t notice my mother yelling at my dog to come inside as it barked. Everything was trivial, a blink of the eye in the grand scope of things. Everything but the light.
It lights our way. Without it we could not see. It guides us. He shows us true scope.
