1. The sixties were brutal. Many dreams died.

Now we are saddled with Trump, McConnell, Ryan and a RW Scotus..... the nation has erred in direction....

3. We turned the corner with Obama but then, sadly, we lost our way again.

I was lucky to see JFK, RFK and BHO on their campaign trails and to shake their hands. As long as I live those moments will stay etched in my memory.

5. I cry, still.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm crying for what was lost, or for what will be even worse if sTrumpet stays in office.

7. RFK Speech: ''The GDP counts "everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile.''



Published on Sep 11, 2008
Forty years ago, Robert F. Kennedy challenged the basic way we measure progress and well-being in America. Today, the Glaser Progress Foundation is raising the same questions through a new medium. The Seattle-based foundation released a new web video marking the anniversary of a famous speech in which Kennedy said the Gross Domestic Product counts "everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile."
