Robert Kennedy announcing the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Both of these figures are historical role models to me. I admire each of their work and what they stood for as individuals.

I think of this speech often when I hear news like what has happened in Fort Hood Texas. My heart goes out to everyone who has los...t loved ones during this time. I know there is no justification that can ease the pain, however I do believe that we have to start deciding how we are going to start treating each other. Not just Americans, but all races through out every inch of this beautiful planet. If we continue to retaliate against each other, what will we have left? I think we all need to do a better job with how we treat each other and we need to watch what we say. I hate to think that a lot of the problems that happen today could be prevented if we all watched our mouths and our actions. I mention this, because even today while studying in the library I over heard two Asian students notifying a group of Caucasian students that they had reserved the study room that the Caucasian students were in. While the Caucasian students exited the room I heard one of them impersonating the Asian students. From the couch that I was sitting on I turned to look at the Asian students hoping that they had not heard those derogatory remarks, but unfortunately the looks on their faces as they watched the Caucasian students walk away was more than enough for any one to see that they were hurt. We really need to watch what we do, because we don't always see who we are affecting.

I can't even imagine being in Bobby's shoes and delivering that news that evening, but the message he delivered asks questions that we all should ask ourselves.

I apologize for getting on the soap box, but if we do not start to treat each other with respect we will have nothing left.
