From the archives… Mindless Menace of Violence
Whether you think the Kennedy’s saints or sinners, there is no denying the talent Robert F Kennedy had for giving a powerful speech which reached a soul of a nation. Even this Pommy, residing in Sydney has been touched by the Kennedy charm.
I would love you to give this video just a few moments of your day.
Look past the tacky, slightly cringey slides and the first 40seconds, turn up the volume, have a quiet moment and listen. Great words, said simply, with a truth and a velvety smooth voice. No brivado, no cheese, just how it is and how it should be. Even though this speech was given in 1968 I think it was ahead of its time and was meant to be recorded in history to be listened to and shared again and again until maybe it starts to sink in a little.
Do you have any great speeches to share?
