We remember the life and lasting legacy of Robert F. Kennedy
and his commitment to a more just and peaceful world with his words:
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal… he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope,
and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring,
those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest wall of oppression and resistance.”

as we look for the good in all things,

grasp tiny moments of joy,

glittering in the darkness,

and gather hope into a soft place to rest when life grows hard.”
