Thank you, my friend SGT (Join to see) for posting the emotionally disturbing music video of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young performing Neil Young's protest anthem "Ohio" which memorialized the killing of four students, who were at a protest, by Ohio National Guard solders in 1970.
I was 14 in 1970 and in high school in Upper Darby, PA.

Ohio written by Neil Young
Lyrics
"Tin soldiers and Nixon's comin'
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drummin'
Four dead in Ohio
Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning 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?
Na na-na-na, na-na na-na
Na na-na-na, na-na na
Na na-na-na, na-na na-na
Na na-na-na, na-na na
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's comin'
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drummin'
Four dead in Ohio
Four dead in Ohio (Four dead)
Four dead in Ohio (Four)
Four dead in Ohio (How many?)
Four dead in Ohio (How many more?)
Four dead in Ohio (Why?)
Four dead in Ohio (Oh!)
Four dead in Ohio (Four)
Four dead in Ohio (Why?)
Four dead in Ohio (Why?)"

In the backdrop of current shootings across the Nation, can RP, as One, come up with viable solutions to curb such local terrorism in the U.S; what are your thoughts, LTC Stephen Ford, Sir?

1. If more families and neighbors are alert to changes in behavior and suspicious behavior that would probably help interdict more potential terrorists before the strike.
2. Since many in this nation move regularly [especially military service members] and in urban areas people often don't know their neighbors, that is a greater challenge.
a. Neighborhood policing has made inroads in some urban neighborhoods building relationships and trust between the police and neighborhoods.
b. It would be great if there were local and national efforts to connect neighbors to restore trust and bridge gaps in the recognition that we have more in common that what separates us - politically, faith, social status, color, etc..
