Blessed are the peacemakers

Not since Bobby have we seen this much love for one man. Obama is the hope of not just America, but the world. Before we see witness Tuesday's outpouring, let's take a moment to reflect on this. People who weren't alive then can't understand how the Kennedys were loved, and the cost at which that love was earned.

Thanks for this reminder, Lisa. I sent it to Christa, my daughter with a little history lesson.

I have had the tv on the last two days...going to an Obama bash tomorrow early evening...DC looks
fabulous though. The vibe literally leaps from the television. You're in the midst of history. Savor it.

Lisa - I was 16 and I cried in 1964 during the DNC ovation for RFK. I am 61 know (just rerverse the 1 and the 6) and I cried watching it again.

RFK's 1968 prediction of a black president within 40 years was right on. This is a wonderful time to be us!

Thanks to you, I feel as if I will be there also. I can think of no one more deserving to witness this Obama/Kennedy fusion of hope than Lisa Pease.

My Eternal Admiration,
John Rosina in Jersey

When he was finally able to speak, RFK said: "When I think of my brother John, I think of the poet Shakespeare when he said in Romeo and Juilet: 'When he shall die, take and cut him into little stars and he shall make the face of Heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish Sun'.
