Quotable: Bobby Kennedy, to President Obama And His Cruel Budget

... Because it bears repeating:

"There is another kind of violence, slower but just as deadly and destructive as the shot or the bomb in the night. This is the violence of institutions; indifference and inaction and slow decay. This is the violence that afflicts the poor....This is the slow destruction of a child by hunger, and schools without books and homes without heat in winter. This is the breaking of a man's spirit by denying him the chance to stand as a father and as a man among other men." ~ Robert F. Kennedy, speech to Cleveland City Club, April 5, 1968
