How Far We Have Fallen

Jim DeRosa has a collection of quotes from Robert Kennedy that reminds us of just how far we have fallen in the quality of our leadership. This one stands out but all are worth reading and cherishing.

“In this entire century the Democratic Party has never been invested with power on the basis of a program which promised to keep things as they were. We have won when we pledged to meet the new challenges of each succeeding year. We have triumphed not in spite of controversy, but because of it; not because we avoided problems, but because we faced them. We have won, not because we bent and diluted our principles, but because we stood fast to the ideals which represent the most noble and generous portion of the American spirit.” - Robert Kennedy, U.S. Attorney General, Senator (D- NY)
