Bobby, we hardly knew you. . .

“Our brave young men are dying in the swamps of Southeast Asia.

Which of them might have written a poem?

Which of them might have cured cancer?
Which of them might have played a World Series, or given us the gift of laughter from the stage, or helped build a bridge or a university?

Which of them could have taught a child to read?

It is our responsibility to let these men live . . . It is indecent if they die because of the empty vanity of their country.”
Robert F. Kennedy
