Oh how well I remember all this. Robert Kennedy's funeral train to Washington. So like Roosevelt's train as my parents told me. Perhaps not unlike Lincoln's in emotional weight.
So many hopes rode with him to his grave. Hope not reignited till 40 years later with the Obama bid for the highest office. Even the Kennedy family have said this. When I found this footage of the funeral train which I haven't seen in four decades it all came back. As if it were only days ago.
Never mind my nasty, deranged,cynical rants below. All that was just the edgy symptoms of worry, and sleep deprivation.
I still hope. I still dream.
All of us that were there. All of us that worked so hard for change. We 'still' have hope that this country can be what it says it is. Free. A Free Nation for All.
