We can perhaps remember, even if only for a time, that those who live with us are our brothers; that they share with us the same short moment of life; that they seek, as we do, nothing but the chance to live out their lives in purpose and happiness, winning what satisfaction and fulfillment they can. Surely this bond of common faith, this bond of common goal, can begin to teach us something. Surely, we can learn, at least, to look at those around us as fellow men. And surely we can begin to work a little harder to bind up the wounds among us and to become in our own hearts brothers and countrymen once again.

  1. RIP, all the Kennedy brothers.
    I still remember watching President Kennedy’s funeral procession at my Grandmothers house, I was three years old.
    I specifically remember the cassion and the horse with the boots in the stirrups backwards.
    I was 8 when Bobby was killed.

    This country would be a completely different place today if John and Bobby not been killed.
