Complete Video Of President Barack Obama Receiving The Kennedy ‘Profile In Courage Award’, May 7, 2017 — With James Taylor.

by Anura Guruge



This is the FULL COVERAGE video, including the opening musical segment by James Taylor (starting at around the 38 minute mark).

Obama’s 30 minute speech starts at ~ 1:13:58 mark; i.e., one hour thirteen minutes into it.

Good ceremony. Haven’t watched all of it. But, saw bits.

Enjoy.

(Re)Watch ‘Bobby’, The 2006 Movie, 48-Years And All That Seems To Have Changed Was Obama!

The FULL MOVIE is on YouTube!


I had seen it in 2006 — when it first came on. It was on DISH this last weekend and I DVRed it and watched it a couple of nights ago.

Wow. Wow. WOW!

It was like a TIME WARP. It could so easily have been June of 2016.

We are still talking about the SAME ISSUES: the DIVIDES — racial, wealth, hispanics-blacks, voter suppression, ‘right to work’, vote-rigging and voting machines.

Scary. IF you are into politics you really should watch this (again).

Makes you THINK — which is always a good thing.

Where would we be, where would the World be, IF just one of the Kennedy brothers had been spared?

The ONLY thing that this movie did not presage was that there would be an Obama exactly 40 years later.

Great movie.

Yes, I am heads down (while current book is being proofed) researching material on Pope Francis’ September 2015 visit to the U.S. which will take in Philadelphia, U.S. Congress, White House, New York, United Nations etc.

Yesterday I published one spreadsheet which was a summary of all the Pope – U.S. Presidents meetings.

This is a summary of all the papal visits to the U.S.

Yes, it is another Anura Guruge Papal Excel spreadsheet.

Yes, it is for another Anura Guruge Pope book. But, that is not the next book. It will be the one after the next. Started working on the data while the next book is being proofed (painfully slowly).

I have another spreadsheet, related to this trip, i.e., Pope Francis’ September 2015 visit to Philadelphia, U.S. Congress, White House, New York, United Nations etc., that I will publish tomorrow.
