When Congressman Dennis Kucinich delivered his speech, "A Prayer for America," to the Southern California chapter of Americans for Democratic Action, it electrified the whole country. In his speech, Kucinich—a 2004 presidential candidate—warned against an America that had discarded the constitutional liberties integral to its identity: "Let us pray that our nation will remember that the unfolding of the promise of democracy in our nation paralleled the striving for civil rights. That is why we must challenge the rationale of the Patriot Act. We must ask why should America put aside guarantees of constitutional justice?" A Prayer for America collects Kucinich's essays and speeches. It represents his holistic worldview and carries with it a passionate commitment to public service, peace, human rights, workers' rights, and the environment. His advocacy of a Department of Peace seeks not only to make nonviolence an organizing principle in our society, but to make war a thing of the past. A Prayer for America includes an introductory essay from Kucinich that reflects on his political journey from his election as the youngest mayor of a major American city to his role as a dynamic, visionary leader of the Progressive Caucus of the Congressional Democrats.

This man is my hero. To read his words is to hear his beliefs, and his beliefs are chock full of his ethics and integrity. If THIS man were President, we Would be at Peace here at home and in the world. He's not a man who just talks about the issues; he has the Solutions! Anyone can talk. Dennis Kucinich has the Answers and the Solutions and.- more ....This is a man who will Perform them! He's the tallest man I know! Boy! Do we need him for 2016! He gets "it!" He just Gets it!

I totally disagree with the review by Publisher's Weekly. This book is not intended to be flowing novel reading. It is a book of public speeches given by Congressman Kucinich at various times and places. The speeches themselves are spiritually inspiring and leave the reader with renewed interest and trust in the American political system. I find these speeches both practical and poetic and feel that anyone, whether a "fan" of Congressman Kucinich or not, will finish the readings with a renewed sense of hope and inspiration.

Liked this grouping of Dennis Kucinich's collection of speeches. We need this message publicized again and again

The book is a collection of speeches that the Congressman gave in 2002-2003. It was a fast read for me, but it was still motivating. Some of the speeches are about the Iraq war are a little dated, since we have pulled out. But the speeches about social justice are just as relevant today as they where 10 years ago.

My grandchildren wanted to get their daddy a book for Christmas, so they were able to pull this off with very little money. The dad was thrilled.

The conventions are over, the canned speeches have been spoken, the demonstrations have been downplayed. Some would say the thoughts of Dennis Kucinich are no longer relevant. I saw a picture today in the paper of John Kerry with John Glenn in Ohio. Dennis Kucinich was also in the picture but was not mentioned. I think the Democratic Party's movement away from the ideas in "A Prayer for America" is a mistake.

This book speaks to the people, it is real, it is thoughtful, it is what we yearn to hear. Much has been lost now that Dennis is no longer in the race for President.

"Let us make one more call for action for the generation that suffered the Depression and served in war and is now in its twilight years to remember the dreams of its youth for personal independence.

Let us make in the days ahead one more reveille for our generation,which unfurled its banner of change in the 1960's, believing 'we can change the world, rearrange the world...'. Let us reclaim the dreams of our own youth for 'harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding...for the mind's true liberation...'.

And let us have a clarion call for a new generation that longs to hear and to see and to feel real commitment, real conviction, real courage to recreate the future.

Nothing less than the future of our nation and the world is at stake. Americans are waiting for us. The voters are waiting for us. They will show up when we show up."

I bought this book expecting a substantive defense of liberal rhetoric and policies that is more principle and less wonk-based than, say, The Conscience of a Liberal or any other highly technical (usually leftist) political manifesto. This was a lot of rhetoric and principle, but it read like shallow Sunday morning cable news talking points rather than actual intellectual discourse on political principles and ethics (where I find Ron Paul's books to be more satisfying on this front). This may be my fault, as I didn't realize it was a collection of speeches until I started reading. Ultimately, and surprisingly, I found what I wanted out of A Prayer for America in Drew Westen's The Political Brain.
I haven't been one to get involved much in politics until recently. The dire condition of our democracy has been weighing on me and until a recent experience, I had somewhat a feeling of helplessness. What kind of world will there be for my daughters Sonja and Celina when they grow up? Will it be in a country which is in a constant state of war? In one of the richest countries of the world where there is widespread poverty, homelessness and people without health care? Where 51% of our federal budget is spent on the military and 6% on health care, and only 3% on education? Where the environment is sacrificed to make short term profits? One where most people live in ignorance, with lack of quality reporting from mainstream media that caters to large corporations and to the military?

I read this book and was inspired by Dennis Kucinich's vision for the American people. I also loved the introduction by Studs Terkel. I was greatly moved and went from a state of apathy to a feeling of great optimism! This is not your typical Democratic politician, this is someone who speaks from the heart, is courageous, and willing to take a stand on the issues that people really care about. He doesn't accept any donations from corporations and has already raised $2,000,000 in contributions. He's truly in touch with the needs of the American people and with the democratic ideals of our past. Hearing him speak, I can see Dennis is a more a true leader than a politician. A leader in the spirit of Martin Luther King and Gandhi.
