I was going through some papers and found the prayer card from Robert Kennedy's funeral in June 8th, 1968 which my mother attended. She had covered him as a reporter in Washington. The remarks on the back from the famous speech he gave after hearing the news of Martin Luther King's assassination touched some of the same notes sounded in the wake of the massacre in Charleston.
