Dean Kahler has energy for basketball and political change -- but not for anger
The most severely wounded of the nine students, Kahler says he became an icon for some -- for better and worse.

Dean Kahler says life has been, at times, frustrating since a guardsman fired a bullet that paralyzed him 40 years ago. But he says he has no room for anger.

In The Region:
National Guard shots killed four Kent State students on May 4, 1970, and injured nine others. Most seriously wounded was Dean Kahler, who was shot in the spine. He went on to teach, get elected Athens County commissioner and advocate reconciliation. He sat down with WKSU's M.L. Schultze to talk about his perspectives of the last 40 years.
