All You Need is Love

Ted Kennedy: Well the answer is love. You get the question. We have to understand that we are a community. We have to understand we are a nation. We have to understand we are a world. And we are all part of a greater concept than generally we have time to think through.

People are working too hard. They’re caring about their kids. They’re caring about their job. They’re caring about their parents. They’re caring about Boston Red Sox. They’re caring about other kinds of issues.

But we are a community, and we have to understand that we, in this sense, have responsibilities. And we have to keep those front and center in our minds and hope that there are people all over the world that are understanding that, and that are going to help us try and make this a better place for all.
