Diane Huber spent the day that Senator Kennedy was shot canvassing for him in the Los Angeles suburbs. She returned to the Ambassador Hotel with a friend and her parents. "We were so thrilled that night and there was so much excitement in the air," Diane says.
Right after Bobby's speech, her friend's dad wanted to leave to beat traffic. As they left, they heard what they thought were firecrackers. "We heard the shots. And we left. But we didn't realize that they were shots," Diane says. Diane didn't realize Bobby had been shot until she got home and turned on the television.
Diane's story helped reignite Emilio's passion for his project. She even became a character in the script!
