In a short speech, Kennedy spoke about compassion, forgiveness, and togetherness to the crowd.  "That was a powerful speech that really changed the direction of the city's response to a tragic event," State Sen. Jean Breaux said. "It was the words of love that Robert Kennedy spoke that allowed us to leave there peacefully and go home and be one of the few cities that did not eruput in violence that evening." It's been 50 years since King died, and 50 years since Kennedy gave his speech in Indy.
