Robert F. Kennedy 'Ripple of Hope' Speech
 
02:09
A small fragment of Robert F. Kennedy's - Day of Affirmation Address in South Africa (also known as 'Ripple of Hope' speech). Soundtrack: Hans Zimmer / "Interstellar" movie main theme " It is a revolutionary world that we all live in, and thus, as I have said in Latin America and in Asia, and in Europe and in my own country the United States, it is the young people who must take the lead. Thus you, and your young compatriots everywhere, have had thrust upon you a greater burden of responsibility than any generation that has ever lived. "There is," said an Italian philosopher, "nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things." Yet this is the measure of the task of your generation, and the road is strewn with many dangers. First, is the danger of futility: the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills-against misery against ignorance or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant Reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and the thirty-two-year-old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. "Give me a place to stand," said Archimedes, "and I will move the world." These men moved the world, and so can we all. Few will have the greatness to bend history , but each of us can work to change a small portion of the events, and in the total of all those acts will be written in the history of this generation." ================================================================================= You can find the whole speech here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o57dEuXj-Y&t=1589s

Robert F Kennedy Announcing The Death Of Martin Luther King - A Great Speech
 
06:29
April 4th, 1968 Martin Luther King was shot and killed. On that night, Robert F Kennedy, New York's senator back then, wanted to deliver the news to the people of Indianapolis, IN Local police warned him, they won't be able to provide protection if the people wold riot because he was in the heart of the African-American ghetto. He wrote his notes on his ride and started the speech without any drafts or prewritten words before his assistance would give him their proposed draft. This speech was delivered on a back of a Flatbed truck. Although all major cities had riots, Indianapolis remained calm after RFK's speech 63 days after this speech, RFK got assassinated. I reproduced the video, creating this version after adding the above mentioned details to it, so the speech can be put into context for everyone who watches it. The reason I labeled it as "The Greatest Speech Ever" was simply the fact that it was never written, it wasn't read from a piece of paper, while there are numerous speeches that are life-changing and timeless, they were almost all written and thought of much more than this one. This one was only written in his heart. The speech: I have some very sad news for all of you, and I think sad news for all of our fellow citizens, and people who love peace all over the world, and that is that Martin Luther King was shot and was killed tonight in Memphis, Tennessee. Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings. He died in the cause of that effort. In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the United States, it's perhaps well to ask what kind of a nation we are and what direction we want to move in. For those of you who are black - considering the evidence evidently is, there were white people who were responsible - you can be filled with bitterness, and with hatred, and a desire for revenge. We can move in that direction as a country, in greater polarization - black people amongst blacks, and white amongst whites, filled with hatred toward one another. Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand and to comprehend, and replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand, compassion and love. For those of you who are black and are tempted to fill-be filled with hatred and mistrust of the injustice of such an act, against all white people, I would only say that I can also feel in my own heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my family killed, but he was killed by a white man. But we have to make an effort in the United States, we have to make an effort to understand, to get beyond and go beyond these rather difficult times. My favorite poem, my favorite poet was Aeschylus. He once wrote: "Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own de-despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God." 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, feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black. (Applause) We can do well in this country. We will have difficult times. We've had difficult times in the past. And we will-we will have difficult times in the future. It is not the end of violence; it is not the end of lawlessness; and it's not the end of disorder. But the vast majority of white people and the vast majority of black people in this country want to live together, want to improve the quality of our life, and want justice for all human beings that abide in our land. With- (Interrupted by applause) Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Let us dedicate ourselves to that, and say a prayer for our country and for our people. Thank you very much. (Applause) Robert F. Kennedy - April 4, 1968

Mindless Menace of Violence (by Robert F. Kennedy) FULL

The Mindless Menace of Violence.. A speech delivered by Robert F. Kennedy on April 5th 1968 (City Club of Cleveland in Cleveland, Ohio).. The day after Martin Luther King Jr. was shot & killed in Memphis. The tragedy took place while Kennedy was on his campaign trail.. And after having to be the person to break the terrible news to a crowd in Indiannapolis the night before, he took the next day off from campaigning, deciding instead to address the situation in an inclredibly real & heartfelt way. If only the public officials & media spoke in such a way today. (Rather than sensationalizing peoples misfortunes & violence, creating further division & fear.) It begins w/ these words (& is beautiful until the end).... "[This is a time of shame] and a time of sorrow. It is not a day for politics. I have saved this one opportunity -- my only event of today -- to speak briefly to you about the mindless menace of violence in America which again stains our land and every one of our lives. It's not the concern of any one race. The victims of the violence are black and white, rich and poor, young and old, famous and unknown. They are, most important of all, human beings whom other human beings loved and needed."

RFK In the Land of Apartheid: A Ripple Of Hope
 
02:30
Available on DVD: http://www.videoproject.com/rfkinlaofapr.html Featuring never before seen archival footage and interviews, filmmakers Larry Shore and Tami Gold tell the little-known story of Senator Robert Kennedy's influential June 1966 visit to South Africa during the worst years of Apartheid. The film is a unique portrait of Senator Kennedy in action at an important moment in American and South African history. Robert Kennedy's visit gave South African opponents of Apartheid -- both black and white -- hope and courage to challenge the apartheid system at a time when they felt isolated and few in the outside world knew what was happening in South Africa. His visit also highlighted the parallels in the fight against racism in South Africa and in the United States, where Martin Luther King Jr., had linked the struggle for Civil Rights with the fight against Apartheid. RFK IN THE LAND OF APARTHEID follows Kennedy in South Africa during the five-day visit, including his famous "Day of Affirmation" speech at the University of Cape Town on June 6, 1966. The speech is generally considered to be the greatest speech of Robert Kennedy's career. One paragraph, featuring the "ripple of hope", is among the most quoted in American politics and appears on Kennedy's gravesite at Arlington National Cemetery: "It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Another high point of the film is Kennedy's meeting with one of the unknown giants of South African and African history -- the banned President of the African National Congress and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Chief Albert Luthuli, who was living under house arrest in a remote rural area. The film includes interviews with those that accompanied or met with Kennedy on his trip, as well as with Edward Kennedy, and an original soundtrack by American musician Jason Moran. Robert Kennedy's actions and words in South Africa were important at the time for one other reason -- it publicly challenged the dominant Cold War ideology that anti-Communism should be the only basis for determining American foreign policy, even if it meant supporting repressive regimes. Kennedy demonstrated how it was possible to promote human rights and democracy in an undemocratic society, while engaging in an honest discourse on America's own historical problems and successes. RFK IN THE LAND OF APARTHEID tells an unusual story through the words and actions of an American politician whose legacy continues to inspire the cause of human rights around the world.

Bobby Kennedy delivered a speech, known as a 'Ripple of Hope', to the University of Cape Town in South Africa amidst racial tensions. On arrival in Johannesburg, the South African government informed then Senator Bobby Kennedy, and his wife Ethel, that they would not be providing protection, but this did not dissuade them. Bobby Kennedy was a fierce advocate for civil rights and a humanitarian in the purest sense. He was known for referencing the quote, "Some men see things as they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?" Bobby Kennedy was the last kind of man who should be taken from this world.

Be a Ripple of Hope
 
01:02
The Day of Affirmation speech was a speech given by Robert F. Kennedy to the National Union of South African Students at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, on June 6, 1966. Kennedy, who was then a U.S. Senator from New York, gave the speech two years before his 1968 presidential campaign, which came to an end when Kennedy was assassinated on June 5, 1968 in Los Angeles. This is perhaps one of his most noted speeches. In the speech narrated by President Barack Obama, Kennedy talked about individual liberty, apartheid, and the need for civil rights in the United States at a time when the American civil rights movement was in its prime. Today, we are asking our union brothers and sisters to be citizens of the world and renew their commitment to social and economic justice-- and start by building relationships in our own community.

The Death of Hope | A tribute to Robert F Kennedy (50th Anniversary)
 
22:05
A man taken before his time. On June 6th 1968, 50 years ago, Robert Kennedy died after he was shot in the head shortly after giving his victory speech after the Democratic party's California primary. The assassin was Sirhan Sirhan, who shot Kennedy due to his support for Israel in the Six Day War, where Israel held off an Arab invasion before expanding it's own territory. The younger brother of President John F Kennedy, Robert was dedicated to his older brother, being both his campaign manager for the 1960 election and eventually serving as Attorney General in his brother's cabinet. During the Cuban Missile Crisis it is Bobby who is largely attributed to keeping his brother from retaliating to the Soviet/Cuban threat as he was largely advised by the rest of his cabinet. Following his brother's death in 1963, Bobby left the Johnson administration. He became the Senator for New York and ran for President in 1968. Bobby was unlike most politicians of his day. A man of great empathy and moral conviction, he constantly quoted the Greeks and numerous other ancient philosophers. He warned of the dangers of money in politics, celebrity in politics while also being holding unusual views for his time such as possibly wanting the legalisation of marijuana. He was an outspoken critic of the war in Vietnam and seen as America's only hope for Civil Rights when Martin Luther King was killed on April 4th 1968, two months before Kennedy's own death. Richard Nixon would go on to narrowly win the 1968 election against Vice President Humphrey. Nixon escalted the Vietnam War with over 20,000+ more American's being killed as a result. We will constantly ask ourselves 'What If?', what if Bobby had become President? What would the world look like? What would America look like?
