Hello guys, welcome to another addition of online with Paul P on JSM network.com. Well another Kennedy tragedy to report. Saoirse Kennedy Hill 22 granddaughter of Robert F Kennedy and daughter of Robert and Ethel Kennedy filth child of Courtney and Paul Michael Hill, died on Thursday of last week. Cause of death has not been confirmed report are read with the Canadian press said that, a person has been found unresponsive that day at the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.After police responded to a call about a possible drug overdose. Now, Saoirse has attended Boston College and the University confirmed this with the Boston Globe. She apparently has written frankly and publicly about her struggle mental health and a suicide attempt while in high school. She wrote and I quote, “totally lost it after someone I know and loved broke serious sexual boundaries with me”.
Further she said, “that she pretended that it hadn’t happened and when it became too much, I attempted to take my own life.” End of quote. Now this sad story adds another chapter to the tragic history of the episodes of the Kennedy family, and that plagued them for many many many many decades. I am just going to and review some of the tragic events that has taken place. First and foremost the big one was Joe Kennedy, now Joe Kennedy was the elder brother of John, Robert and Ted and he was a very handsome and smart very intelligent individual,but he was killed in a bombing mission during World War II. So, their father Joe Sr. wanted one of their sons to become president. So, we are sort of on the list of John Kennedy who will be next in line to fulfill that role.
And so,it was, John F. Kennedy became president of the United States. And in 1960, however in 1963 November of 1963 he was killed by an assassin’s bullet. And that was a tragic periodin America.We mourned for many many days, weeks and months. And it was so sad because he left behind two young children Caroline and John Jr. His brother Robert F. Kennedy was the attorney general with the John F Kennedy administration, but he left politics after his brother died, reentered the presidential race of 1968. While in the primary in Los Angeles California, in June 1968 he too was killed by an assassin’s bullet. So, that left Ted Kennedy. Ted Kennedy was Senator from Massachusetts. He had two bad episodes that plaque him. One was a plane crash which really left him almost paralyzed. He had a bad back.It took him almost a year to recover from that.
And another incident was in 1969 at a social gathering in a place called Chappaquiddick Massachusetts, he was with a young beautiful woman. Apparently coming back from that social outing his car ah, I guess according to the reports went off a bridge into murky waters. She lost her life. But that tragedy plagued him for the rest of his life. Actually, there was a TV movie made about that. A grandson of Robert and Ethel’s“Michael Kennedy” was killed during a skiing accident in Colorado on New Years Eve in 1997 at age 39. In 1984 another son, David A Kennedy died of a drug overdose in Florida at age 28.And of course,John F Kennedy Jr. who was son of the last John F Kennedy was killed with his wife and sister-in-law in a plan crash off Martha’s Vineyards in Massachusetts in 1999. So, tragedy has followed the Kennedy family. The Kennedy family are rich, they’re powerful, they were the elite. They came as close to being a royal family in Americas anyone during the history of the US to be honest with you.
They were immortalized in the 1960’s, they were young, they were brash, handsome men and the people flocked to the Kennedy’s. They had lots of vitality they were part of the new frontier. Joe and John were war heroes, so it was you know a story book. A story book story, to be honest with you. And it was great. They received lots of coverage; the press loved them. The Media of course loved them, and it was a new error of TV coverage and what have you. But with public life comes public scrutiny and the Kennedy’s was scrutinize for a long long time, many decades. They did not have much privacy of course.You know Jackie took ah, the wife of John Kennedy too John Jr. and Caroline and tried to keep them out of the public as must as possible. It was very difficult to do. The point I want to make with you is the next generation has found it hard to live up to the Kennedy mystique, so much was talk about the Kennedy’s. they were put on top of a pedestal, so anyone associated with the Kennedy name would find it very challenging. Though Saoirse Hill did not have the last name of Kennedy, she did have Kennedy blood and that’s the important thing to remember.
It is sad to lose someone so young so bright so beautiful so gifted. In time we will learn the cause of her death and no matter how it happened, the pain of her family is real, it’s very real. Now let’s remember one thing every soul is important to God, it a treasure to God. So, may Saoirse soul rest in peace and our thoughts and feeling go out the family at this time. Those are my views I welcome yours. You’re listening online with Paul P on JSM network.com wishing you all a great day.
