Robert F, Kennedy, Jr.: Saint Francis of Assisi is my hero because he understood the connection between spirituality and the environment. He understood the way that God communicates to us most forcefully is through the fishes and the birds and the trees and that it is a sin to destroy those things.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: (Regarding his family's response during the Cuban Missile Crisis) I remember there being a discussion at home with my father about whether or not we should be moved. There was a bunker under Camp David, where there was room for us. But there were two considerations that I remember my father articulating at that time. One was that we shouldn't be moved, because it would cause other people to panic if we were moved out of Washington; and the other one was that, if there a nuclear war, none of us would want to be around afterwards, anyway.
No one has discussed Robert F. Kennedy Jr. yet. Start a conversation!
