Robert Kennedy standing in motorcade in drenching rain, campaigning in an open car May 13, 1968 in north Omaha, still a predominantly black neighborhood.

Kennedy drew cheers & large crowds despite the weather

Robert Kennedy would be 95 years old today.

Kennedy campaigned in Omaha in the rain, keeping the car top down & without an umbrella so people could clearly see him & touch him

Reports say at leaset a thousand people waiting in the downpour.

A month later he was dead.

Robert Kennedy - 95 today

To go beyond these difficult times:

"Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God"

Robert Kennedy, Jr. 4/4/1968

Look at the faces of the people

And then he was gone
Robert Kennedy would have been 95 years old today.

Boris Johnson affirmed the notion that combating disease is the task of a whole society

Trump viewed his fight w the coronavirus as an individual struggle. That difference manifests most powerfully today in the countries’ disparate modes of health care

foreignaffairs.com/articles/unite…
British citizens enjoy universal health care mostly free at the point of service, whereas the United States predominantly has a byzantine system of private insurance pegged to employment.
