When one chooses to live a life of battle in defense of one’s homeland, one has to resign to the fact that peace, of the inner kind, may not be as sublimely articulated as that of the others. Author Anderson Medina recognizes this incalculable weight of loss, scars and unseen pains in A Gift From Andy.

Men and women of honor who shed their own blood, sweat and tears in defense of freedom deserve a certain kind of respect—irrefutable and beyond question. However, Medina reckons that his brothers and sisters in war who forever stand guard in foreign borders lack the recognition and acknowledgement of a display tribute that they are worthy of. He takes the challenge of atoning for this lack and shortcoming by the majority in his latest anthology poetry that inspires and fills the gap in between the empty spaces of the American conscience. Medina further wrote:

“I hope that the silent screams of my warrior brothers, who I had to live with for over forty-five years in nightmares are spilled in each page, and the tears of each mothers, sweethearts, and children reflect in small verses that my experience were also felt by their loss, even after all this, suffering shouldn’t be a waste between the borders of humanity, I hope you find the same peace I have found in A Gift from Andy.”

From the universally truthful “What Love Is?” to the radically crafted “Rape by our Society,” Medina efficaciously provides comfort and solace to those that suffer in silence—soldiers, the elderly, solo parents and the hateful youth in A Gift From Andy.
