The powerful message in The Kennedy Legacy: It's Time to Fulfill It is that the original American culture, which was created and shaped by our colonial ancestors, is near death. Linda Rae Hermann traces the demise of our inherited culture with its traditions of civility. Without these traditions, the fabric of society has been unraveling. Children killing children and multiple massacres are just a few of the consequences from the loss of our original culture. In other words, Americans have become more uncivilized.

The author takes us on a journey back to our beginnings and up to the present, focusing on the 1960s when the cultural revolution accelerated. She draws from academic knowledge as well as personal experiences in the sixties as a nun, a Hippie, and a convert in the Jesus Movement. After reading this book, you will understand that American culture has been changed. You will understand the role John F. Kennedy was supposed to have played in preserving that culture. You will understand what forces caused the demise of American culture. Finally, you will learn how to restore the original culture along with the traditions and institutions upon which our nation's social and political soundness depends.
