So often, these Kennedys - John, Robert, and Edward - found the right words to say, to the United States and to the world. John F. Kennedy, the charismatic president with a strong commitment to justice and human rights. Robert F. Kennedy, senator, attorney general, and presidential candidate, who carried the family standard after Jack's assassination and broke new ground in civil rights prior to his own tragic murder. Edward M. Kennedy, the Lion of the Senate, whose passion created some of the most far-reaching legislation of the last five decades. "The Dream That Will Not Die" collects some of the most striking speeches and quotations by the Kennedys, showing that even when the going was tough, these brothers found the right way to make their thoughts and feelings clear, showing their charm, humour, and determination. Here you will find your own inspiration, in the words of three men who believed that all Americans deserved the same privileges the Kennedys were born to, privileges they never took for granted.
