The last time I remember experiencing 'the incredible lightness of being'
was the night Bobby Kennedy won the Californina primary. I jumped out
of bed and slapped the TV 'off' button, saying to myself: 'He's gonna' do it.
He's going to be the next President of the United States.'
And then I went to sleep.
That was 41 years ago.
But the next morning I felt no different than I do today. Something truly good
was permanently lost from the future landscape of America.
'... history will judge you, and as the years pass, you will ultimately judge yourself, in the extent to which you have used your gifts and talents to lighten and enrich the lives of your fellow men. In your hands lies the future of your world and the fulfillment of the best qualities of your own spirit.'
Robert F. Kennedy, Politician (1925-1968)
'Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago:
to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world.'
Robert Kennedy, in his statement on the Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Indianapolis, Indiana, April 4, 1968.
