RFK’s Powerful Message

On June 8th, 1968, senator Edward M. Kennedy gave an address at the public memorial service for his brother Robert F. Kennedy in St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York.

The result was one of the most riveting and moving speeches ever articulated. The majority of the speech conveys what his family felt about him, expressed through a speech Robert F. Kennedy himself made to the young people of South Africa on their day of affirmation in 1966. The following visual compilation is a tribute to one of the finest speeches and moving eulogies ever made.
