Reason #52 To Blog4Peace ~ The book I keep on my table

In June of 1968, Robert F. Kennedy addressed university students at Cape Town, South Africa. Out of that speech came one of my favorite pieces of writing to ever grace the page...in my humble opinion.
I keep a vintage copy of his speeches on the table in my living room. There has not been a voice since....like these two men.
They knew the power of words.

"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation. 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 that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance......."  Robert F. Kennedy, June 1968

I blog for peace because I believe in the power of words. To heal. To change. To admonish. To lead.
