While television became a staple in American homes, more of the population was becoming better informed of events in our country and the world. This portal also opened up Pandora's box resulting in the youth of our nation questioning everything. The sixties started out as an idealistic time, characterized by our President and First Lady. The Kennedy's epitomized a time of family, elegance and community service Jacquiline Bouvier Kennedy became a role model for womenaand young girls who followed her fashions and admired her personal accomplishments. President Kennedy's charm and charism, and easy going manner set a tone for Americans...until fear gripped our nation. The "Camelot" years were soon to end as one event led to another: the Cuban Missle Crisis, President Kennedy's Assassination, War in Vietnam, struggle for Civil Rights, and the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy. Marches, protests, violence created a nation tearing itself apart.
