Ohio, Neil Young 1970

Recommended Posts

"Ohio" is a protest song and counterculture anthem written and composed by Neil Young in reaction to the Kent State shootings of May 4, 1970, and performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.  
It was released as a single, backed with Stephen Stills's "Find the Cost of Freedom”.   
Young wrote the lyrics to "Ohio" after seeing the photos of the incident in Life Magazine. 

To all our social justice fighters. 
May you have the strength, the stamina, and the charity to understand and love others, even in the midst of chaos and evil!!! 
Love, peace, and joy to all peoples!!! 

Feedback is much appreciated.  Thank you.
