May 4, 1970: Thirteen seconds of shooting, and four college students lie dead on the ground. David Wirick was a straight-arrow ROTC sophomore anticipating a career in the Army when National Guard soldiers shot and killed his classmate. In this graphic memoir, originally exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Katherine Wirick uses a single huge page to bring to life her father's eyewitness account of the killings at Kent State, a story that raises disquieting questions about American freedom and the abuse of power. But NO ONE IS SAFE is also the author's personal meditation on art, rage, and the end of her childhood: a frank and moving confrontation with the past.
