29. I'm sure they still have the vigil
They will start tonight around midnight and stay throughout the night, holding lanterns in the spaces where the four kids died. I've been there a few times. The hardest times for me was standing with Elaine Holstein, Jeff's mother, in Jeff's space and later, standing with Peter Davies, author of The Truth About Kent State in Allison's spot. I've stood for all of the students but haven't been back to Kent since 1977 when they built a gymnasium over part of the site. That so infuriated me that I refused to go back. However, I am planning to return this July with my sister (DU's remfan) because I have some research I must do. It's going to be tough going back onto that campus.
