Hill remembers Kennedy’s push on race equality and his stance on justice.
“A cop in Boston once told me, ‘We'd still be at the bottom of the ladder, but he didn't just help us up, he instilled in us that once we got up, it is our duty to reach our hand down, and help the next person up,” Hill said.
“Many great things will be penned in the memory of this man, and as ever there are those who will attempt to dwell on his frailties in life. It is in this regard that when we recall Teddy, we recall that he was all to human, but in the twilight of his life the good vastly out weighed his frailties,” he added.
