The girl screaming in a familiar image taken after the Kent State shootings, during 1970s Vietnam war protests, has reunited with the man who took the photo.
John Filo kissed Mary Vecchio on the cheek Monday after they appeared together at an anniversary event at Kent State University, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.
It was the first time the two were together at the school since May 4, 1970, when National Guardsmen shot four anti-war protesters dead.
Filo was a photojournalism major and would win a Pulitzer Prize for his photo of Vecchio crying out with her arms raised as she knelt at the body of a student.
At the time, Vecchio was a 14-year-old runaway who had come to Kent State to take part in the campus war protests.
