Tribute to Senator Robert F. Kennedy

In this moving eulogy to Robert F. Kennedy, Edward Kennedy says of his assassinated brother: "My brother need not be idealized, or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life, to be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it." This speech is available from American Rhetoric on MP3 download.
