We were there and heard when John F. Kennedy said that the torch had been passed to a new generation of Americans. We responded then- we joined the Peace Corps, fought to end the Vietnam War, brought forth the peace symbol and flower power and spread that power around the world.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is asking us today to stand with him in fighting again against the tyranny that threatens us, and the pessimism that until now has been pervasive in the newest generation.

After a lifetime of service to others as an environmental lawyer, RFK Jr. has taken on the task left to him by his uncle and his father to seek the Presidency and to lead our country, in John F. Kennedy’s words, to …step back from the shadow of war and seek out the way of peace. And if that journey is a thousand miles, or even more, let history record that we, in this land, at this time, took the first step.”

RFK Jr. is the first leader in many years whose honesty and kindness has compelled the millennial and other generations to again have hope for the future. Our “boomer” generation still feels strongly our commitment to fight for a free and peaceful future for our children and our grandchildren.

As torchbearers, we can support Robert F Kennedy Jr in his battle as he said: And so today I declared my independence from the tyranny of corruption which robs us of affordable lives, belief in our future, and respect for one another. And to do that, I had to declare my independence from the Democratic Party and independence from all parties.”

In John F. Kennedy’s words to our generation, we believe that: “Our deep spiritual confidence that this nation will survive the perils of today which may well be with us for decades to come compels us to invest in our nation’s future, to consider and meet our obligations to our children and the numberless generations that will follow.”

As we declare our independence from the divisiveness and polarization of the two political parties, we can seek peace and hope in supporting RFK Jr.’s election.
