There are 2 comments on POV: Remembering RFK, 50 Years Later

  1. Fifty years later, it is Bobby’s vision for the future that resonates most deeply. In the face of personal grief and national unrest, Bobby spoke honestly and unflinchingly about an America of compassion and potential. His personal ability to connect with the disaffected and disenfranchised alike, as well as his hope for a better tomorrow, came from the heart. His record may have been equal parts ruthlessness and compassion, but the underlying theme was integrity. When Bobby spoke about this country, there was a truth in his voice that is rarely heard from elected officials today.

  2. RFK would have been a great president, perhaps among the very best. The tragedy was that he lived — and died — in the second great Era of Assassinations.
