" The violence culminated in tragedy at Kent State and Jackson State in early May 1970....While some reacted in horror to the government killing their own young people, others applauded the officials for finally taking action against the protesters." "..Pat made her choices. She might not always have liked it, but she chose to live the life she did. She recognized that the thrill of traveling all over the world, the satisfaction of helping people in trouble as she did in Peru, and the pride of representing the United States in Africa came at the price of the frustrations of living in the public eye. She might not have been happy with certain aspects of her life in politics, but it was a life she chose to lead, and it was one that brought her immense satisfaction at various times. The little girl from Artesia learned at an early age that life was not fair, but if you worked hard, you might get part of what you wanted."
