Newton, MA – Congressman Joe Kennedy III today released the following statement in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the death of his grandfather, Senator Robert F. Kennedy.

“Fifty years ago this country lost a good man – a husband, a father, a brother and a son. For Robert F. Kennedy, strength lay in compassion, power came from empathy, and integrity was defined by how we treat the least among us. At a moment in time when division, distrust, and discrimination plagued our communities, Senator Kennedy believed that from Boston to Bed-Stuy, the Mississippi Delta to the Great Plains, every life was worthy and every face should be seen. May we honor his legacy and carry his memory with us today."
