Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Blanco’s contributions to the fields of poetry and the arts have already paved a path forward for future generations of writers. Richard’s writing will be wonderfully fitting for an inaugural that will celebrate the strength of the American people and our nation’s great diversity.”

—President Barack Obama

“Blanco showed great courage . . . and it’s courage that is the most important of all virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”

—Maya Angelou

    not so much

    I listened to the author on NPR and was impressed by his positive attitude in all his poems. I bought this book for our grown son. I bought the author's book of poems for our high school graduating grandson, not the same family. a must read for thoughtful people who would like to promote peace.
