Yesterday I videotaped Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa as he was honored with the Graven Award. The third son of Bobby Kennedy spoke a little about the environmental organization Riverkeeper and how they have fought to protect the waters of the Hudson River from being polluted and how those efforts have spread around the globe.
His father who while running for president in 1968 was assassinated and who was the subject of the 2006 Emilio Estevez film BOBBY is where the quote of the day comes from. It’s one you’ve probably heard before but well worth repeating no matter where you stand on the political spectrum:
“There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why…I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?”
Robert F. Kennedy
