“Some men see things as they are and say why.
I dream things that never were and say why not.”

Just had the chance to sit down and watch this movie, and it is quite possibly the best movie I have ever seen. It reminded me how much we need someone like Bobby Kennedy to come along and say enough is enough, we can’t continue on in the same vein.

“When you teach a man to hate and fear his brother, when you teach that he is a lesser man because of his color or his beliefs or the policies he pursues, when you teach that those who differ from you threaten your freedom or your job or your family, then you also learn to confront others not as fellow citizens but as enemies, to be met not with cooperation but with conquest; to be subjugated and mastered.” -RFK, April 5, 1968 ((See and hear entire speech here)

I bawled like a baby at the end, while they played this speech and showed footage of his death and the additional shootings, even though I knew what was going to happen. It still hurt.

  2. It makes one grieve for the vision as much as the man.

  3. What a beautiful quote. Thanks for reminding me that even though the word can get totally crazy that there are people who come along that can give us great hope. Next time I wish we wouldn’t kill the person. That would make it even better.
