Song Lyric Sunday. Ohio by Crosby, Stills and Nash.

​This week Helen Espinosa of This Life one step at a time said:So, thanks to Kerry of herheadache, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song that helped teach you something new (something you weren’t aware of before you heard it).  I hope I captured what Kerry wanted with her suggestion, but I think it’s a good one and am forever grateful that I have followers willing to help me out.

I have picked Ohio by Crosby Stills and Nash. Now I was not sure what the song was about at first until I researched it, no quick google fix in those days. What I found out shocked me.
The Kent State Massacre 1970 please read here

 After the Kent State massacre, Neil Young saw a photo of 14-year-old Mary Ann Vecchio kneeling over the dead body of college student Jeffrey Miller. He poured his rage and sorrow into the lyrics to “Ohio” and called his Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young bandmates into the studio the following day to record the new song. Even though “Teach Your Children” was all over the radio, the label rushed the finished product out, and it was playing over the air before week’s end. CSNY broke up just a few months later, making “Ohio” their furious final statement – at least until the many reunion tours.

LYRICS

Ohio”

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

K’lee and Dale’s Diary  of an InternetCosmic Photo Challenge.

#CosPhoChal.

Dale  said :Today it’s up to me to pick the theme and I’m going to give you a pretty free rein this week, but with one important caveat. The prompt is; Freestyle effects

So  after  some  thought I  decided  to  show  you  my  walk  home  from  the  gym  via  the  church yard. It  is  always  very  calm  and  atmospheric but  with  a  little  help  from Picasa 3  (  I  am  no  professional)  I  am very  pleased  with  the  shots I have come up  with.

With purple  around  the  outside  edge  the  photo  looks  as if it is  lifted. The  dark  shadows within  the  inside  edge of  the photo   gives  it  a touch of  the spooky.
