    Exclamation The girl in the Kent State photo...

    The girl in the Kent State photo...

    This is one of the most iconic photos of the Kent State shootings:

    PB3SEXD2BRCZ3C2WWKO7JVAZPM.jpg


    On that afternoon in 1970, the world was just as riveted by an image that showed the life draining out of a young man on the ground, this one a black-and-white still photo. Mary Ann was at the center of that photo, her arms raised in anguish, begging for help. That photo, of her kneeling over the body of Kent State University student Jeffrey Miller, is one of the most important images of the 20th century. Taken by student photographer John Filo, it captures Mary Ann’s raw grief and disbelief at the realization that the nation’s soldiers had just fired at its own children.

    The Kent State Pietà, as it’s sometimes called, is one of those rare photos that fundamentally changed the way we see ourselves and the world around us. These images shocked our collective conscience — and insisted that we look. But eventually we look away, unaware, or perhaps unwilling, to think about the suffering that went on long after the shutter has snapped — or of the cost to the human beings trapped inside those photos. “That picture hijacked my life,” says Mary Ann, now 65. “And 50 years later, I still haven’t really moved on.”

    I remember some news org did a story on her sometime in the 80's.

    Seems her whole life was just a candle in the wind. Going from one whirlwind to another.

    The photo went out nationally to some extent altered -- someone had taken the fence post out:

    Makes sense. Otherwise, honestly, it looks rather like her head has been impaled, and that's distracting.
