Listen to Robert Kennedy's 1968 speech

On April 5, 1968, Robert Kennedy gave a speech at the City Club in Cleveland, Ohio. This was the day after Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and killed in Memphis. The title of the speech is “The Mindless Menace of Violence.”

With the recent tragedy in Florida, I would urge The Gazette to reprint this speech in full for everyone to read. If the reprinting and publication of the speech is not possible, I would recommend anyone who is not familiar with the speech to go online and listen to it.
