1. Things may be very different had he not been murdered.

I remember how exited everyone in New England was when he was running in 68.
Then they took him from us.

9. There was "Bobby fever" at my elementary school in Arkansas in April/May

After school resumed in August, it seemed like a lot of the Bobby kids had become Wallace kids.

4. In memory of a great man...one of his quotes fitting for today

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” RFK

7. I always wonder why there was such a murderous spree in that time period.

 

I always try to figure out who had the most to gain.

8. I remember somewhat

about when JFK was murdered, some more with Malcolm X, a lot with MLK and RFK, I'm now 58. Before 1968, I was hearing my right wing father rail on about the hippies and the commies, those draft dodgers and intellects....how much he hated LBJ. Well I stopped listening.
