“Make Gentle the Life of This World”

Thirty-nine years ago today Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated.  He is a hero of mine.  Below are two clips.  One is a photo montage that plays while Edward Kennedy is delivering Bobby’s eulogy.  The second is a photo montage overlaying Bobby’s announcement of Dr. Martin Luther King’s death.

Listen to his words.  The man was compassion.

Through no virtues or accomplishments of our own, we have been fortunate enough to be born in the United States under the most comfortable conditions.  We, therefor, have a responsibility to others who are less well off.
