A friend of mine put this video out on social media this afternoon.
He asked those in his network to be quiet for a few minutes and listen to it.
I heard Sen. Robert Kennedy make these remarks in real time, when it happened in April 1968. Indeed, Sen. Kennedy was the rare politician who could speak the kind of blunt truth that we all needed to hear — even if in times when we might not want to hear it.
I want to share my friend’s video here.
I also want to echo his admonition. Take a few minutes and listen quietly to what this politician had to say during an earlier time of national grief.
