“How many times must we live through these throat-paralyzing sequences of days of gun play, grief and muffled drums?”
The question, posed by LIFE magazine in its June 14, 1968, issue, is freighted with all of the wrenching emotions unleashed by the events that so unsettled the country and the world in the first half of that schizoid year, 1968. The assassination of Dr. King; the Tet Offensive, the My Lai massacre and all the other horrors attendant on the war in Vietnam; and, on June 5, the murder of Robert Kennedy by a Jerusalem-born Jordanian, Sirhan Sirhan, in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.
