This morning I heard on the radio today is the 52nd anniversary of the tragic shootings on the campus of Kent State University in Ohio. Many other colleges and universities were aflame that convulsive spring as anti-Vietnam War protests roiled their student bodies and administrations.
But something else was happening, with a very different group of students, at a small school in pastoral Wilmore, Kentucky. To hear the story, click on my podcast, American Stories, “Kent State and Beyond” at Anchor.fm/rebeccapricejanney. And for the full and inspiring account of what took place at Asbury College, read my book, Sweet, Sweet Spirit ,about one young woman’s transformation from the despair of the late 1960s to hope in the unshakeable foundation of faith in Jesus Christ. https://www.amazon.com/Sweet-Spirit-Spiritual-Journey-College/dp/1951080831/ref=sr_1_1?crid=33K2GEQFIBONN&keywords=Sweet%2C+Sweet+Spirit+Janney&qid=1651677477&s=books&sprefix=sweet%2C+sweet+spirit+janney%2Cstripbooks%2C83&sr=1-1
