RFK on MLK & The Need for Peace

On April 5, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy, a candidate for President for the Democratic Party, gave a short, yet beautiful and passionate speech, just a day after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr was assassinated. On MLK Day, I wanted to share with you this speech, as it is not only echoes Dr. King and what he stood for, but its message and demand for peace, for a stop of the violence of that era, domestically, and certainly overseas, is still strongly relevant today.

The speech, called ‘On the Mindless Menace of Violence’, can be read here.
