Title

Robert F Kennedy, "A Call to Stop Violence"

Description

Senator Robert F. Kennedy, in a speech to a city club in Cleveland, Ohio, bemoans the futility of violence and how it erodes love and connection between human beings. The Senator criticizes the country's tolerance and desensitization towards acts of violence, as well as the institutional failures that do not address public needs adequately, due to the heinous dynamism of racism. Within his "A Call to Stop Violence," speech, Senator John F. Kennedy calls on Americans to look for true justice, and to strive for reaching commonal goal that all Americans can agree with, invoking a sense of unity and cohesion among Americans without capitalizing on the contretemps of others.
