June 6, 1968 Senator Robert Kennedy is dead after being shot the day before in a Los Angeles hotel. Kennedy had been the Democratic party's likely candidate for president as late returns in the California primary were pointing toward victory. The man who assassinated him, Sirhan Sirhan, was convicted of murder the following year and given the death penalty. His sentence was later commuted to life in prison. Photo: Justin Beck / SF
We like to think of WWII as an American War, but the truth is many more countries were involved long before we were. Their sacrifice, particularly involving that of civilian casualties, was incredible. Without England, Russia, and Canada WWII , at least in Europe, would have been lost by the Allies.
Ronald & Nancy Reagan...this is so sweet it brings tears to my eyes...what a love! I still remember his funeral and how she layed her head on his coffin when saying goodbye...she had such elegant grace and loved him dearly ♥
