Before the horrors of November 22, 1963, Randy Whitman, like all teenagers, had his passions and dreams. He wanted to become one of the most celebrated high school debaters in America, and he hoped to perfect his self-defense techniques through his karate studies. His personal goal was to shake hands with President Kennedy. But when Randy fell in love with his debate partner and was forced to face his parents' bigoted objections to her Mexican culture, his outlook on life began to sour. Soon, on a grassy hill in Dallas, he came face to face with Evil, hastening his journey to courage, redemption, and his own legacy.
