Quote from Robert F. Kennedy's famous "Ripple of Hope" Speech delivered in South Africa in 1966 when South Africa was deep in the throes of Apartheid. In a courageous act, and against all the advice of almost all those who were grooming RFK for the Presidency, he delivered this speech calling people worldwide to the cause of freedom and equality.
It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
