Robert Kennedy’s words…
At the university, Daddy gave perhaps the most eloquent speech of his life. In it, he laid out the underpinnings of government. He said the individual is the child of God and that the aim of all government must be to maximize human freedom.
Bobby Kennedy laid out the four dangers for those “who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change.” He enumerated the danger of futility – the belief there’s nothing a person can do in the face of the enormity of the worlds ills; the danger of expediency – the belief that “hopes and beliefs must bend to immediate necessities”; the danger of timidity – the fear of being ostracized for changing the status quo; and the danger of comfort – ” the temptation to follow the easy and familiar paths of personal ambition and financial success so grandly spread before those who have the privilege of an education.”
