Lupain fakta kalo kejadian ini terjadi di negara bagian favorit gw, California. [Ato perbincangan di 21 BSM dan sms beerapa bulan lalu... huiks] Jangan perhatiin nama-nama besar yang maen di film ini karena mereka emang rada2 ga penting tp cukup mhiasi jalannya. Liatin aja qoute yg ada di cover film dan setelah itu tonton Bobby dalam keadaan ga ngantuk. Lo bakal kesentuh banget ama Robert F Kennedy.

Inspiring me to fight against racism and violence. Instead of writing d whole part of film, i'd like to share Bobby' speech in d end of film. The part after he got shot by silly boy in Ambassador Hotel LA' kitchen.

Setiap kalimat di pidatonya Bobby terangkai dengan baik. Ga usah dengerin suara dan intonasi orasinya yg sebernernya ga kalah oke aja, gw betah ngebacanya. Apalagi kalo diliatin bersamaan dengan detik-detik penembakan itu, beeehhh... ceurik-ceurik dah maneh! Pantesan Ruben Frederick Knehans bangga bgt punya inisial yg sama dan menjadikan logo RFK sebagai icon dirinya. Hahaha, ben ben... kamu dimana ya?

Check this out!!!

It's 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 the violence in America, which again stains our land an
d everyone of our lives.

It's not the concern of any one race. The victim f the violence are black and white, rich and poor, young and old, famous and unknown. They are, mos important of all, human beings whom other human beings loved a
nd needed.

No one, no matter where he lives or what he does, can e certain who next will suffer from some senseless act of bloodshed. And yet, it goes on and on in this country of ours.

Why? What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created?

Whenever any America's life is taken by another American unnecessarily..
Whether it is done in the name of la, or in defiance of the la
w by one man or gang, in cod blood or in in a passion, in an attack or violence, or in response to violence...
Whenever we tear at the fabric of our lives...
Which another man has painfully and clumsily woven for himself and his children...
Whenever we do this...
The whole nation is degraded!!

Yet we seemingly tolerate a rising level of violence that ignores our common humanity and our
claims to civilization alike.
Too often, we honor swagger and bluster and the wielders of force.
Too often we excuse those who are willing build their own lives on the
shattered dreams of other human beings.

But this much is clear : violence breeds violence, repression breeds retaliation, a nd only a cleansing of our whole society can remove this sickness from our souls

From when you teach a man to hate and to fear his brother,
when you teach that he is a lesser man because of his color or his beliefs, or the policies that he pursues,
when you teach that those who differ from you threaten your freedom or your job or home your family,
Then yo
u also learn to confront others not as fellow citizens but as enemies
to be met not with cooperation but with conquest to be subjugated and to be mastered

We learn, at last, to look at our brother as aliens
Alien men with whom we share a city, but not a community
man bound to us in common dwelling, but not in common effort

We learn to share only a common fear
Only a common desire to retreat from each other
only a common impulse to meet disagreement with force

Our lives in this planet are too short
The work to be done is too great to let this spirit flourish any longer in this land of ours
Of course, we cannot banish it with a program nor with a resolution but we can perhaps remember,
if only for a time, that those who live with us are our brother, that they share with us the same short moment of life, that they s
eek, as do we, nothing but the chance to live out their lives
in purpose and in happiness,
wining what satisfaction and fulfillment that the can

Surely, this bond of common fate
Surely, this bond of common goals
can begin to teach us something
Surely, we can learn at the least,
to look around at those of us, of our fellow men,
and surely, we can begin to work a little harder
to bind up he woun
ds among us
and to become, in our hearts,
brothers and the countrymen once again..
