God Bless Juan Romero

Kneeling again next to RFK

Tragedy at the Ambassador

Busboy Juan Romero, 17, comforts Sen. Robert F. Kennedy moments after Kennedy was shot at the Ambassador Hotel on June 5, 1968. 

Paying his respects

Juan Romero, with daughter Elda next to him, kneels at RFK's grave site. He wore a suit for the first time in his life, saying it was the proper way to show his respect for a man whose memory he has tried to honor by living a life of tolerance and humility. 

A place for healing

(Carolyn Cole / Los Angeles Times)
Romero holds himself at least partly responsible for Kennedy’s death, and in his private moment with RFK now, he wanted to ask forgiveness. 

Oh my god, the poor man.  It's awful that he blames himself.  
Mr. Romero, you, sir, are the definition of class and nobility.
I hope you found some solace.
