"What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black."

-Robert F. Kennedy

This is a moving eulogy to one of America's, and indeed the world's, greatest icons of peace and love- Martin Luther King Jr. Published by American Rhetoric, this is Robert F. Kennedy's short speech given to the American public following the assassination of the Civil Rights leader on 4 April, 1968.

It is an important speech among the many that are relegated to history's archives. It stands out because it marks an important moment in American history- the death of the man who led a non-violent movement against racial prejudice in a period of socio-political turmoil in the country. Throughout the eulogy, Robert Kennedy asks both the black and white people of America to take the country forward on the ideals of peace and compassion as preached by Martin Luther King, and not polarize it.

This is indeed a moving tribute to a great man. The audio quality is flawless. I recommend this audio piece to young and old alike.
