Remembering RFK

This week:

As we remember Robert F Kennedy, 50 years after his passing, here are some memorable moments and lessons that remind us that “leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence”…

The Busboy Who Cradled A Dying RFK Recalls Those Final Moments:

Looking Back On The Life Of Robert F. Kennedy, 50 Years After His Assassination
“What we need in the United States is not division. What we need in the United States is not hatred. What we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness but is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black.”
