Re­flect on our val­ues aswe honor RFK, vote on Tues­day

The Mercury News Weekend - - OPINION - — Richard Twohy, San Jose

Mil­lions of Amer­i­cans will vote this com­ing Tues­day, in pri­mary elec­tions in var­i­ous states.

June 5, 2018, also marks 50 years since Bobby Kennedy was mur­dered in Los An­ge­les — shat­ter­ing yet another piece of our Amer­i­can dream — as he cel­e­brated win­ning Cal­i­for­nia in the 1968 pri­mary elec­tion for pres­i­dent.

This can be a wor­thy mo­ment for our na­tional fam­ily, an op­por­tu­nity, in the choices we make that day, to help one another heal, as we help to cre­ate the “more per­fect Union” men­tioned in our Dec­la­ra­tion of In­de­pen­dence.

RFK stood for the best of our won­der­ful coun­try. Let us re­flect on our Amer­i­can val­ues as we take the time to honor him, and each other, on Tues­day.
