On Martin Luther King day, we reflect on Bobby Kennedy delivering the news of King’s death to a large crowd waiting for him to give a campaign speech. After he told of the horrific news, he said this beautiful poem to the crowd. He stated…

falls drop by drop upon the heart,
until, in our own despair,
against our will,
through the awful grace of God.
