Goodbye Teddy

I just spent an emotional morning watching Ted Kennedy's funeral, very touching. I also enjoyed the memorial last night. I am so grateful it was streamed.

Here is a link to the funeral program:

Another anniversary




The anniversary of the murder of Robert F. Kennedy is here again. The years seem to be passing by so quickly. It is 41 years since he was killed at the Ambassador Hotel while running for President of the United States.

For me, the fact that Barack Obama is now president lessens the political loss. To me, Obama will be the type of president I would have expected RFK to be. I hope I will be proven right. Whatever, the future of the world seems more hopeful than it did at this time last year.

I still feel that we should remember all that Robert F. Kennedy tried to do for the United States. He did give his life for his country. Thankfully, many of his children are carrying on his work in their own way.

Here are some news stories I found today:

It's almost that time of year again, hard to believe it was 41 years ago.

The right path

You may think I'm crazy but this was put into perspective for me when I heard an editorial by Bill Flanagan on CBS's Sunday Morning. He believes that Obama got so much support from a lot of people who came of age in the 60s because after 1968, and the deaths of MLK and RFK, the US began on the wrong path. But with Obama many feel that we are finally on the right path. Now this is where the crazy part comes in. When it was announced that Barack Obama had been elected I heard a very noticeable click and had a rush of thoughts about Bobby, and then I felt that everything had come full circle. I've never had a feeling like that before. It is as if that if Bobby couldn't be President, at least Obama made it. Flanagan also stated that maybe we can finally put the 60s behind us now. However, that won't stop me from reading and writing about RFK.
