    What a great show, I was only eleven, so I dont remeber alot of it. Watching the funeral train segment for Robert Kennedy with the thousands of people lining the tracks, makes me ask where has the unity has gone in this country?? It seems like nothing brings us together anymore. would anything today bring the response and national mourning his death did ???. everything is just to damn fast nowdays. Just curious what everybody else thinks.

    I watched the show. And I remember 1968 well, I was 22 and out of the Marines/Vietnam less than a year. Daughter was born about 10 minutes after Robert Kennedy was shot. It was a hell-of-a-year. He (Brokaw) did a good job giving a lot of insite into "maybe" the most violent year in our history.

    I was on Berkeley Police Dept. from '61 to '66. Then to the State Patrol and was sent back to Berkeley on a regular basis during that time. I had very little interest in revisiting any of that period thanks.....Bob Dodd

    It was a great show, I was 17 facing the draft lotto the very next year. I"m still here in the Chicago area where I've been all my life. I was at the riots during the convention and luckily didn't get killed or arrested. I was antiwar and anti establishment. The next year I drew nuber 5 in the lcuky lotto fo the draft, i lucked out got hit by a car at 15 and had sholder surgery it was touch and go but they gave me a 1S classification untillI turned 24 then made me 4F. I lost several close friends to that f@%$&*% war, guess I'm glad to be able to remember it all now.

    I watched about half an hour and then I asked myself "why am I watching this left wing bullshit?", so I switched to something more interesting-----

    I wanted to watch that show but forgot when it was on. Now I'm not sure i missed anything. It was the year I graduated high school and went in the military. Was not my best year to say the least.
