Bobby

A fictional story about Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination, during his electoral campaign. Presented quite well, and has the elements of hope and justice entwined into the story.

The last scenes shocking events have RFK’s famous speech – “On the Mindless Menace of Violence“. Truly a noble speech. We have much to learn from it.

I include a few quotes from this noble speech.

It is not the concern of any one race. The victims of the violence are black and white, rich and poor, young and old, famous and unknown. They are, most important of all, human beings whom other human beings loved and needed. No one – no matter where he lives or what he does – can be certain who will suffer from some senseless act of bloodshed. And yet it goes on and on and on in this country of ours.

When you teach a man to hate and fear his brother, when you teach that he is a lesser man because of his color or his beliefs or the policies he pursues, when you teach that those who differ from you threaten your freedom or your job or your family, then you also learn to confront others not as fellow citizens but as enemies, to be met not with cooperation but with conquest; to be subjugated and mastered.

Our lives on this planet are too short and the work to be done too great to let this spirit flourish any longer in our land. Of course we cannot vanquish it with a program, nor with a resolution.

But we can perhaps remember, if only for a time, that those who live with us are our brothers, that they share with us the same short moment of life; that they seek, as do we, nothing but the chance to live out their lives in purpose and in happiness, winning what satisfaction and fulfillment they can.

I saw this film several months ago, but never got to posting about it. Its all about the noble, war crazy Spartans, going on a suicide mission. What comes out is all blood and gore. It’s how they go about it that makes this film interesting. Nobility, wit, effective tactics, planning, and most of all loyalty to thy nation are just a few to learn and see. What is it that makes men brave? Is it fear or just plain stupidness? Or is it pride of belonging to a proud nation…

For those who wish to see it, here is the torrent

I guess I’m not a great blogger, but I have my reasons… Legitimate ones at that. However, there are just somethings you have to let out, but no one around you is interested in (or has the time for it) anymore. So then i turn to this blog.

I’ve learned a lot from experience than from books, though my profession deals a lot with harbouring knowledge taken from books. Yet nothing makes me a better worker than handling a situation hard on, than reading about it or taking notes. This exposes me to the vulnarability of luck, and in the dark moments of “I haven’t seen / done this before” I assume the best for my patients, adhering to protocol (rules) and hoping for the best.

This includes a lot of headaches, and more fire than glory. So why put up with it? Well, it all comes down to what your made off.. how you’re wired.. and what you can put up with.

Nobility at work is one virtue I look out for in anyone. It’s comforting to know that that person behind the desk, or at any form of service to others does it not because of the pay, but to do a service and do it good. To be noble at work is to take pride in what you do, and to do it with confidence. It does not incur that we have to be flawless at work. Being human means to falter somewhere or the other. It’s inevitable. Yet, realizing your error and taking measures not to repeat it, and oversee such similar errors in the making is the most integral part of being noble at work.

It’s with all this in the back of my head, that I stumbled upon a film on TV. “The Guardian” was the name and it’s all what I have said above.
