Robert F. Kennedyby Steven K. Schneider
In this information-pocked account, Steven Schneider has superbly depicted the colorful political and family life of one of our most fascinating personalities in American History. "What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence or lawlessness, but love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another..." Robert F. Kennedy It was this message that Robert Kennedy took to the American people in his ill-fated Senatorial campaign, his last and final one that would lead to his assassination. It would end not only a colorful career but also end a message of hope for the troubled 60s. Robert F. Kennedy was born into a wealthy and competitive family. The message for every Kennedy was to strive hard, work hard, and by all means win your battles. He spent his whole life trying to reach new goals and new heights. Whether it was helping his brother with campaigning, becoming Attorney General, or by scaling mountaintops or kayaking down swift rivers, Robert always believed in pushing oneself further and further. Even with the untimely death of his brother John, Robert continued his quest to make it on his own. He was successful in becoming a United States Senator from New York, which gave him an opportunity to help the poor and uneducated.
