August 11, 2011-- Now Included in the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights Photo Collection of 33 original images made by Clyde Keller. Included on my forthcoming book on Robert Kennedy. Note: I have included a portrait of myself holding the Nikon F film camera i used to photograph Robert kennedy. It is of historical interest because it is the first self contained motorized unit to include a battery pack. Known at the REMO Pack, only 200 were reportedly made-- had no idea at the time how rate these units were-- this is the precursor to all modern motorized professional cameras,
Kennedy fought for Civil Rights as Attorney General; his positive vision for the advancement of peace, justice, equality and responsibility is still relevant today.
In this documentary portrait, taken at Portland State College, RFK addressed the relevance of the "Spirit of Youth" mindful of the "Revolutionary Spirit" that led to the foundation of the United States. He spoke of "a temper of the will" when dealing with our adversaries. Robert argued for ending the War in Vietnam, citing that the North Vietnamese leader, Ho Chi Minh, had quoted the American Declaration of Independence as their inspiration for them to declare independence from the French. Robert embraced peaceful coexistence in an era of militarism and like his brother was receptive to a standing down from armed rivalry with Russia. As visionaries the Kennedys stood for ideals that could not only lead to peaceful coexistence but transcend the antagonisms generated by opposing social systems.
“What the students of Poland now fight for, what the students of Czechoslovakia appear to have won is not a victory of ideology; it is a victory of the spirit.
This spirit has been heard in the defined courtrooms of Moscow, in the streets of Spain, and in the schools all over the United States. It is he spirit of youth.
It's not a time of life, but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a preference for courage over timidity; of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. It is the spirit which knows the difference between force and reason.
It does not accept the failures of today as the excuse for the cruelties of tomorrow.
It knows the wisdom of Archimedes and that says, 'Give me a place to stand and I can move the world,' and youth is finding a place to stand.
That is the spirit I want to see return to the United States of America and that is why I'm running for President of the United States.” (Photo above taken close to this speech segment.)
