Remembering RFK: Why Not?

Today is the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.

If I have to choose my most admired politician, then RFK is the one. To me, to this date, he remains the symbol of decency, courage and compassion. But, of course, when he left our world, I was not even four years old. I mostly learned when I could about him when I was in college and read Arthur Schlesinger Jr.'s "Robert Kennedy and His Times."

My favorite of RFK quotes: "There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not."
