Our friend at Bark, Bark, Woof, Woof reminds us that on this day in 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot in Los Angeles after celebrating his win in the California primary. If his brother’s death was the most tragic day in American history, the assassination of Bobby Kennedy was the most heart-breaking. It truly was the end of the American Dream. Since RFK died, this country has been divided and distracted by an insidiuos brand of conservatism that has choked the life out of our national identity.
Yes, Bobby was fond of quoting Shaw, “Some men see things and say “why?” I look at things and say “Why not?”
Like Bobby, I look at our country and say “When?” When will another RFK come forward and return us to our greatness?
