The lyrics of Dion's song for John, Martin, Abraham and especially Bobby, plus the the lyrics to "American Pie", are bouncing through my head at this moment. We lost another of those who touch us, and give to us, something that is so difficult to put into mere words.
God, I feel like I have lost a family member. I was 14 when Bobby died, and I still choke when I hear Dion's poignant tune. I thought the world of Bobby and John Kenedy. I grew to appreciate Dr. King, and all that he said, and all that he did, and all that he meant to literally millions of people, here, and around the world.
I grew to like, and respect Edward (Ted) Kenedy as well. The things he worked for, the battles in the senate he fought for the common man, and woman...these things will carry on for years to come. these things that Ted, and john, Martin, ol' Abe, and Bobby worked to achieve will be their legacies, and these men, and the ideas they worked and fought for should not be forgotten...or cheapened, by the politics of THIS time !!!
