Bobby Kennedy's Funeral Train


June 6th was the 45th anniversary of Bobby Kennedy's assassination. The pictures taken from his funeral train going from New York to Washington are haunting. People standing in crowds holding flags, women still in curlers, a single family of four paying their respects by the side of the tracks. It's one of those things that wrenches your heart seeing people coming together to honor and mourn, wondering how history could have been altered if things had been different.

See the whole album here, and see Bobby announce Martin Luther King Jr.'s death just two months before his own.
