Robert F Kennedy 50 Years -- June 5, 2018

50 years ago today, presidential candidate Senator Robert F Kennedy was murdered in Los Angeles, California. He was a World War II veteran, who served on the ship named after his older brother, the USS Joseph P Kennedy, Jr. He was running for the Democratic nomination when he was shot. He wanted to help the poor and disadvantaged.  If he had lived, the world would have been a different place.

"What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created? No martyr's cause has ever been stilled by an assassin's bullet. No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders. A sniper is only a coward, not a hero; and an uncontrolled or uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people."
