On the Mindless Menace of Violence - Zen Pencils

Zen Pencils never fails to provide meaningful material. In #188, Gavin has illustrated an excerpt from one of Robert F. Kennedy's most important speeches, titled ‘On the mindless menace of violence’, which Kennedy gave on April 5, 1968, the day after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.
