excerpt from Robert Kennedy's speech in Indianapolis on April 4, 1968--the night of Martin Luther King's assassination

"My favorite poet was Aeschylus...

He once wrote: 'Even in our sleep,
pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart,
until, in our own despair,
against our will, comes wisdom
through the awful grace of God.' "

...and, the peace sign turns 50.

Peace be with you...


  1. I let April 4th go by, and then realized what anniversary it was. Oh, God. Thanks for having posted that videoclip.

  2. That was a terrible day. It was a terrible year, and I had forgotten the words of Bobby Kennedy that night and his steadfastness of speaking as was scheduled.He knew the importance of words and the movement of speech.I forget sometimes with all the belly-aching and sniping that we hear from political candidates today what raw truth sounds like.
