Remembering Bobby Kennedy – A Voice for Peace & Equality, Gunned Down 49 Years Ago this June 6th

A Brief One from Doug Draper

Posted June 6th, 2017 on Niagara At Large

How different the world might be today had he survived to win the U.S. presidency in 1968, rather than Nixon.

Click on the following to hear readings of a message of hope that then U.S. Senator for New York, Robert F. Kennedy delivered 50 years ago this June 6th, during a visit to South Africa where the racially oppressive system of apartheid was then fully entrenched and anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela was serving the first years of a decades long ordeal in prison –

.During his 1968 presidential campaign, Bobby Kennedy was fond of ending speeches with a line from George Bernard Shaw – “Some men see things as they are and say, why; I dream things that never were and say, why not.”

It is a line we would all do well to embrace today. I miss you Bobby.

    And to quote Donald J Trump, words that will be immortalized in the history of the English language and that will inspire future generations –

    “I like the poorly educated, I have big hands and I’m the greatest, I’m REALLY smart, bigly, wonderful and the best athlete ever and everyone else is bad, terrible losers, disasters and bad hombres, believe me”.
