Anniversary of Bobby Kennedy's Death

Today is the 40th anniversary of Bobby Kennedy's death. Hardly seems possible (but I guess that is what all us 50 summats say!). One of those occasions that those of us who were around then will never forget. I got sent this quote from him, which has as much resonance now as it did 42 years ago -

Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality of those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change.

Robert F. Kennedy, in a speech in Capetown, South Africa, June 6, 1966.
