Remembering June 5, 1968

Not quite five years after his brother, President John F. Kennedy was killed by an assassin’s bullet in Dallas, Robert Kennedy, democratic candidate for President, was shot in the head and back by gunman Sirhan Sirhan. Kennedy died the next day.

When I think back to the kind of man Robert Kennedy was and the turmoil of the times, I wonder what kind of difference he would have made as president. His death likely cemented Nixon’s journey to the White House.

Oh, the good they die young.
