The last time we saw Robert Francis Kennedy, he was a 42-year-old presidential candidate half a century ago. One-tenth of the millennium. The light of his memory was still bright.
Most people in the world will not remember until June 4, 1968, the day that began for Kennedy with a tragedy avoiding suicide after midnight.
The disgusting day began while staying at Hollywood, John Frankheimer, director of Malibu Beach. Kennedy, his 12-year-old son David and three-year-old son Max, played at the surf. David went for a cool swim in the ocean and sank and got trapped. His father drowned at the shore and plunged his head down the tumultuous waves to save his son from drowning. Both came out of the ocean, scattered and bruised by the seabed and Pacific, but the tragedy was prevented.
Frankenheimer, who has full experience in makeup, touched Kennedy's forehead before a candidate appeared in front of national news and television cameras.
Kennedy's brutal presidential campaign was in full swing as he watched the results from the California primary. It will be a huge success for the New York Senators, and the celebration will be held at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. His triumphant speeches were full of vigor, humor, and delight. The all-important Democratic National Convention in Chicago has arrived, and Kennedy was praised, urging his followers to go: "Now go to Chicago and let it win there.
The crowd that demolished the hotel room # 39 continued to swell as the winning candidate was lowered to the double doors of the kitchen. Fifteen minutes after midnight, between the ice machine and the stainless steel heater, a fire broke out in a rapid pop. Kennedy was shot four times (including a bullet) with 22 bullets fired by a 24-year-old Palestinian. Shocked by Israel's commitment after a senator's speech at a Polish synagogue a week before the assassination, his gun was fired and five others joined.
Just two months after delivering a speech to a surprise crowd in Indianapolis shortly after the murder of Martin Luther King Jr.. The turmoil of 1968 hit the foxes when the Vietnam War broke out, and bags filled with American soldiers continued.
Many historians have suggested that the spring of 1968 was the lowest point in the entire nation since the civil war. The progress of civil rights has been severely hampered with both assassinations, and the prospect of endless wars in Indochina seems to be warranted. The country was fragmented at the seams, it seemed at times of ethnic riots and large-scale marches.
The Democratic National Convention, which followed Kennedy's assassination 12 weeks later, showed more cracks in the country than any other event. Anti-war demonstrators clashed with Chicago police and the National Guard at Grand Park Avenue, Michigan Avenue, and around Amphitheets in full view of national television viewers.
Kennedy traveled on a long burial train carrying his coffin from New York to Washington, D.C., on June 8, commemorating Abraham Lincoln's journey more than 100 years ago. Thousands of mourners lined the streets wishing a final farewell to the men who represented the poor, privileged and powerless.
Always fond of literature and poetry, Robert Kennedy liked to define George Bernardard's words to his own ideals. Many of Kennedy's speeches include his vision: "Some people see things like theirs and say, 'Why do I dream of things ever and say why not?'
The public service of Robert Kennedy has really evolved over the years. He began his career in Washington as an advisor to the Senate Labor Committee, where he fought with the likes of Jimmy Hoffa and other world-class actors. He left the committee to organize his brother's presidential campaign as he promoted his image as an honest, heartless organizer.
After being named United States Attorney General, White. R. R. He has once again turned his attention to fighting organized crime, perpetuating the injustice of segregation and addressing widespread poverty in the country. He was a leading catalyst for the civil rights movement and served as President Kennedy, one of the most trusted and valuable advisors to local and global concerns.
It was Robert Kennedy's wise advice that helped solve the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962, which threatened the whole world with nuclear war.
Kennedy, the father of 11 children, was a man of great patience and compassion. He identified and empathized with those who suffered from poverty or disease or oppression, despite growing up in an affluent household. He took to the streets of Mississippi to take a closer look at the political poor. Bobby learned firsthand from distressed people whether it was in the American slums or apartheid of South Africa, and he accepted their suffering.
He stood by the civil rights leader when it was time for the nation to rewrite its policy on segregation and discrimination. He was the primary agent of change that helped the 1964 Civil Rights Act come to fruition.
Robert Kennedy joins Cesar Chavez and the United States Agricultural Union to provide representation and voice to workers and migrants as they struggle with low salaries, inadequate treatment and poor working conditions.
And, of course, he set up his political platform around the end of the Vietnam War, which lasted nearly five years after his death.
Brother Ted Kennedy in St. Louis; Louis Patrick & # 39; His chaplain wrote the words of his brother killed in a speech that Robert himself chose.
My brother does not have to make any ideals or grow up in death any more than he has in life, to be remembered simply as a good and decent man who saw wrong and tried to correct it, see suffering and try Heal it, see the war and try to stop it.
Five decades have passed since Robert Francis Kennedy was taken away, and sadly we haven't seen his favorite ever since.
