Kennedy, shares personal remembrances of her father and through interviews with politicians, media personalities, celebrities and leaders, explores the influence that he continues to have on the issues at the heart of America's identity. Robert Kennedy championed the disenfranchised from Watts to the Mississippi Delta. He battled corrupt union bosses and protected Alabama Freedom Riders. He embraced Cesar Chavez and opposed the Vietnam War. He fought racism, lauded courage and called for peace. He soothed those who suffered, and he suffered himself. He announced his 1968 bid for the presidency saying "I am convinced that this country is on a perilous course and because I have such strong feelings about what must be done, and I feel that I'm obliged to do all that I can. I run to seek new policies - policies to end the bloodshed in Vietnam and in our cities, policies to close the gaps that now exist between black and white, between rich and poor, between young and old, in this country and around the rest of the world. I run for the presidency because I want the Democratic Party and the United States of America to stand for hope instead of despair, for reconciliation of men instead of the growing risk of world war. I run because it is now unmistakably clear that we can change these disastrous, divisive policies only by changing the men who are now making them." Merging undaunted courage and emotional honesty in the quest for social, economic and racial justice, the hope of youth, the mindless menace of violence, the struggle in cities and the challenges faced by rural America, Robert Kennedy remains a hero and inspiration to individuals on the entire range of the political spectrum. To honor her father on the 50th anniversary of his death, Kerry Kennedy has turned to others to share how he influenced their lives, from politics: Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Lewis, Barack Obama; from business: Apple CEO Tim Cook, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz; from entertainment: Tony Bennett, Alfre Woodard, Martin Sheen, and Shirley McClaine; from Journalism: Chris Matthews, Soledad O'Brien, Joe Scarborough; as well as American labor leader Dolores Huerta, feminist Gloria Steinem, and many other well-known personalities.

Riveting! Such a wonderful reflection of love and a tribute to a legacy that will live on for eternity. What will you make of your dash? How will you be the change? Will you sit idle or will you become involved for the betterment of society? A wonderful read by Kerry Kennedy in Robert F Kennedy Ripples of Hope. The individual stories truly lended a more intimate and deeply moving tribute to such a powerful, kind, gentle humanitarian. A man that led by example. That taught through kindness. That utilized a community to come together as 'one'. The needs of others was always front and center in a time of civic distrust. "They understood. They embraced. They listened." "Fierce loyalty to family, fierce confidence in ourselves, fierce intolerance to injustice." Not enough to listen we must communicate effectively in hearing both sides. In today's world there's too much anger, hostility, bickering. What we need is a moral compass, a human component of understanding, a level of empathy that brings us together rather than divides and conquers. Hope. Courage. Democracy. "He felt a responsibility for Vietnam." He ran out of a sense of duty, a sense of responsibility, and a sense that he could play a role i righting what was going wrong in our country and in our world. Having just finished, Trump's America I was immediately pulled to read this one next. I'm so glad I did. The fact that there was no blame, no anger, no hostility, no denial of facts and truths. There was a genuine authenticity. A genuine love. A genuine warmth that was rippled through each and every page not just by Kerry but by those closest to him in every regard. True that our economy has changed . Rather than say get a job you lazy bum, take more training, do more drug testing for those benefits, stop having kids, and finding other means to denigrate those in need of the safety net Kennedy decided to do one thing"LISTEN." In listening he was able to redirect this passion for helping others and attend to their needs directly and in the most efficient and productive means and it showed with the attention he received in return. Some crave the spotlight. Some need the constant ego fix. Some operate from a grandiose view of themselves that's artificially inflated. For others it's about values, morals, obligations, rights, freedoms, and keeping a democracy for all the people not just the privileged, the elite, the top one percent of the population. He heard the pleas for help, he understood their needs, he followed his heart. It takes a real man to understand the real needs of others who are struggling to survive. It takes courage, it takes strength, it takes truths. We must continue to work together. We must all play a vital role in our current system of government. We must stay active, informed, and educated as to the constant alterations to the very fabric that was built on blood, sweat, and tears. Freedom isn't free. Thank a vet! God Bless Thank you Kerry Kennedy, her publisher, NetGalley, and Aldiko for this arc read in exchange for this honest review. This was purely electric and truly was a beacon of light for us all.

    How I wish that today's world had more of the optimism that Bobby Kennedy possessed... This book should be required reading in all high schools. Young people need to know who Robert F. Kennedy was as an individual, a politician, and a "changer". This book made me hopeful that there are citizens around the world who possess the qualities that Bobby strove to enlightened his community with. I highly recommend this book! It is one of the best books of 2018!

    A great read. It’s amazing how many people RFK inspired through his work with civil rights, education, justice and peace. This is not a biography. It’s a collection of interviews with actors, actresses, politicians ( past presidents, senators), journalists, musicians, civil right activists and even an 18 year old woman, who never met RFK, but was so inspired by his humanitarianism, she is following in his footsteps. Would things be different if RFK wasn’t assassinated? Maybe. We need more RFK’s.

    Truly inspiring work. 50 years after his death, his words continue to serve as a powerful influence on so many. Reading his words now, I can see how devastating his death was in 1968. Can’t help but think how much better America could have been had he become President instead of Nixon.

    Excellent book. Kerry Kennedy interviews various people- politicians, social activists, artists, actors to understand the impact her father Senator Robert Kennedy had on their lives and activism. Deeply moving and inspiring to hear how this man touched so many and continues to touch so many.

    Inspiring tribute to a man whose ideas and beliefs are as poignant (and demanding of our attention) today as they were a half-century ago. A life can be cut short. A movement cannot.
