Broadening a View of the Possible

Robert F. Kennedy's legacy of inspiration and change

I’ve ever done that I’m proud of.

Nov. 19 saw the rechristening of the Triborough Bridge as the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge. The dedication was the centerpiece of a raft of events celebrating the life and legacy of Robert Kennedy, and his ongoing contribution to the lives of all New Yorkers.

I was at that dedication.  And I thought about a man who did so much to shape the person I’ve become, the city I love, and the nation that –- in the wake of Barack Obama’s stunning victory –- I feel especially proud to call my own.

Here’s hoping we continue to dream –- and achieve –- things that never were.
