Donald Flowers' name should be heard

No one in the press ever speaks the names of the men who were killed at Williston. R.I.P. Donald Flowers. Do you know the other man's name? I do not forget them, nameless as they have been to me all these years. I have prayed for their souls, for there but for the grace of God went I as they were found right outside my classroom door which was of significance to me. I always felt they took bullets meant for me as I was harassed terribly the entire year I was at Williston, for what reason? Because I was perceived as a privileged white woman? That's as far as the thinking went, no appreciation for the fact that my gg grandfather trekked down from Ohio on Sherman's March to the Sea during the Civil War to give slaves their freedom. Very, very tragic for these Pinkerton men who were just doing their job guarding a school. So very sorry for your loss. I know your family has suffered.
