Not in anyway related to what is going on other than that we could use him right now but Bobby Kennedy died 52 years ago today, a day I will never forget. I went to bed the night before hoping that he had won the California primary. The next day my mother woke me up early for school (I was 17) saying he had been shot. In many ways it’s a day I’ve never recovered from. Just thinking about it right now fills me with incredible sadness and emotion. Coupled with the death of Martin Luther King and the Vietnam War, it was the end of innocence, at least for me.
