I was attending Northern Illinois University. Everyone on dorm floor applauded. It was on my birthday, April 4, 1968. I packed and left that day.

    Yeah, I remember the cheers when MLK, RFK, and George Wallace were shot, the OJ Simpson verdict, and when our troops bombed Bagdad. I do not feel that it is my job to educate these people on how to behave towards people different than them. We can better lead by example. If I turn my back on these types of people, who will offer them a balanced different point of view?

  • It still amazes me that there are, were and will be people like that.
